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. Hardiman is a caring Dr. who answered all our questions and recommended surgery that was needed as soon as possible. We were lucky to have her as our surgeon for our Dad who has stage 4 colorectal cancer. I wish all Dr's had her bed side personality and concern for their patients. Thank you.
