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 had a hernia repair surgery performed Dr. Canfield. I couldn't be more happy with the results. Everything from pre-surgery office visits to post-surgery care was excellent. Also, high marks for his office staff.

I've used Dr. Canfield for two procedures and have been happy with him for both -- very friendly and personable and very professional. He's taken the time to explain my situation, the surgery and the prognosis, all in layman's terms that I could understand.
