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.

Not very personable, acted as if I was wasting his time. Did not seem to care at all. Pulled out his cell phone while I was explaining my symptoms. Overall bad experience. Other staff was nice though.

It was a horrible experience. He completely lacks bedside manners. I ended up asking for a referral to another specialist.
