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.

Dr. O'Keefe has been my doctor for over 10 years now. I am a "challenging patient" with many different ongoing conditions. She handles them all. If she doesn't know the answer, she finds it out. She never gives up, or loses patience. Her bedside manner is excellent. She listens, is well-informed and up-to-date. I have seen many doctors in my life...she is the best I have ever had! I spent 25 yrs. myself in the medical field. I know it from the inside out. Excellent communicator!
