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. Thornton is my 31 yr old Cerebral Palsy & Epilepsy daughter's doctor. She is proactive with her and is wonderfully cautious with all aspects of her health. Dr. Thornton always listens to my concerns and acts upon them. I have never had a problem getting a last minute emergency appointment or a call back when I leave a message.
