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.

Me and my daughter had genetic testing done by this dr. At the time I thought all results had been disclosed to me. Until 6 years later I saw additional reports that were sent to one of my daughters specialists indicating that she had 3 additional genetic conditions that were never disclosed to me. One of which I am a carrier and if I had more children could have passed this on to them. When this came up in a follow up she said “it wasn’t important”. I will never return to this woman again.
