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.Allen was able to answer all my questions regarding a recommended medication. She has the knowledge and experience to convey factual support. She recommended a vitamin supplement to support the medication. The pharmacist was surprised and told me that most doctors overlook the need for supplements and asked my doctors name! This too gave me confidence in Dr.Allen's professional and caring advice.
