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 Atherton is NOT accepting new patients 5/13/21. I tried. He has a great reputation and is my wife's cardiologist. My loss. I missed out on a good dr that communicates well. We have alot of international dr's here. Too bad they'd fail a basic communications comprehention test. Dr Atherton is the best dr my wife ever had.
