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. Trotter performed gastric surgery on me in 2016 and did an amazing job with pre- and post-surgery. He is informative, empathic, compassionate, talented, and the best surgeon. I recommend him to everyone and believe he left the Rapid City area. I would like to know where he is at these days. Dr. Trotter, you have changed my life for the better and will be forever grateful.

Very considerate, he took a lot of time with me. I had a difficult problem other surgeons were afraid to touch. Dr. Trotter figured out the problem and fixed it.
