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.

I was in excruciating pain from a ruptured disk at L 4-5, Dr. Lyons was thorough in his explanation about the procedure, and performed my surgery perfectly. He literally gave me my sanity and life back. It's really amazing being strechered into the hospital-couldn't walk, have surgery, walk-out hours after the surgery and pain free!
