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.

After getting a defib pacemaker basically went no contact. ended up going to another doctor who took me off three quarters of the medications he had me on that kept me so sick i felt like i was dying. I will never go to him ever again and will never recommend him to anyone unless they want to die.

I was a caregiver for one of his patients and he encouraged her to loose weight and supported her with the cause of better health for her heart . Dr. Blue was kind and caring with her ! This patient had three open heart surgeries and has completely made a turn around and dropped over a hundred pounds with hard work and Dr Blue rewarded her for the efforts !! Such a wonderful man and Dr.
