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.

I've read about Dr. Van Why's issues. I have to say I visited him for many years and felt he did excellent work for me. It breaks my heart to know he has had these problems. I miss him and would go back to him in a minute. Good doctor fell victim to alcohol very sad.
