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 took my son to see Dr. Ament to try to determine if he has celiacs. After testing my son for other things we got conflicting information from Dr. Ament. One visit he told us just to not worry about anything, then the next visit he strongly recommended an endoscopy and gave me incorrect test results? I'm terrified that he's giving incorrect care to other children.
