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.

Absolute worst, most incompetent, uncaring doctor I've ever seen. 35 minutes late - could have been more if I hadn't noticed her ongoing chitchat with another doctor. Absolutely no answers, she just repeated what I already knew and told her back to me. Did not even look at studies.

Doesn't respect others time. She has a policy of canceling an appointment if late by 10mins. But still I need to wait atleast 30min for every appointment.

I was scheduled to see the doctor at 8:50am and got a call 15 minutes prior to say that the appointment was cancelled. Why? Because she reviewed my chart and said she doesn't specialize in progesterone. Why wouldn't they tell me that when I made the appointment a month ago? Very unprofessional and a complete waste of my time. I would not recommend this doctor nor the practice if this is how they conduct themselves professionally with patients.
