Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

We had our first child a few days ago and brought her in to SH pediatrics for her first newborn appointment! Dr Willoughby was AMAZING! We are first time parents and she eased our fears about a lot of first time parent concerns! She was very thorough and kind! She is extremely knowledgeable! We are extremely happy she is our daughters pediatrician!
