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. Higgins does not have good bedside manner. She did not tell us our dad had dementia. Outside of Carla her entire staff including the practice manager are extremely rude. I do not recommend Dr. Higgins.

Unable to provide medication management within her area of geriatric specialty. Insufficient communication between staff and patient; takes repeated phone calls for response from PA; doctor does not return calls even after several messages.
