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.

While you may have to wait a few extra minutes in the waiting room later in the day, Dr Stephen is very knowledgeable, professional and personable. She caught several melanomas on me which required surgery, before they were a more serious issue. Explained the issues an options completely.

The wait time was more than I expected (30 minutes), but once I got into the examination room, Dr Stephen came in the room with no additional waiting. She did her usual "thorough"examination which I appreciated. j
