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.

Doctor invoices for services not provided. He bills for HIS time when my child has only talked with clinical staff (and we also get billed for the clinical staff time). The clinical staff bill is always for more time than the actual time spent with my child. Doctor requires a monthly appointment even though every three months is state/federal requirement. My child asks every month to move to an appointment every three months. He never gets a straight answer. No resolution from office to any of the billing issues.
