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.

I have been Dr. Aiken's patient since 1993. I don't, and have never, had another doctor. Enough said?

Dr. Aiken takes excellent care of my husband and his complicated medical issues. She's smart, professional and puts the patient at ease with her pleasant personality. She makes observations some doctors would overlook.

I just moved from out of state and just before moving had been diagnosed with a thyroid condition. Dr. Aiken took her time with me, gave me a game plan, and has a great bed side manner. When my medication had undesirable side-effects she worked with me until we found a good match. She is relaxed, approachable, and very easy to talk with. Even when I wasn't following orders -- she didn't talk down to me. I'm very happy I found her.
