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.

This was a first encounter with Dr. Thigpen so I have nothing to compare with. Her personality was condescending and sarcastic. I only hope she makes up for these shortcomings in her cardiology expertise; although there is no excuse for being rude. If this was not an isolated incident, maybe she would be better suited for another specialty---possibly pathology.
