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.

My husband saw him because he was having BAD shoulder pain. After trying meds and injections Dr. Diehl did surgery on it and then sent him to therapy for a while. He fixed it!! Dr. Diehl knows what he is doing! He is very nice and professional and so is his staff!
