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.

The best qualified Urological Oncologist in Western North Carolina by far. He restored my normal lifestyle after other doctors would (or could) not.

Dr. Simpkins is rude and inconsiderate. I would not recommend him to anyone. I would think that if you are a doctor you want to help people, this is not the case with Dr. Simpkins.
