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.

Had surgery in October of 2016. Couldn't ask for a better doctor. Bedside manner and overall caring was top notch. It's important to have trust and a connection with a specialist and I really did. Bottom line he's amazing at his job. 2 years after my surgery myself and my wife were at the hospital visiting a patient and he walked up to us to say hi. Remembered us by name ....Impressive
