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 came to Dr Tarsa at 24 weeks pregnant with a high-risk pregnancy after my former OB had completely terrified me. Dr Tarsa was so knowledgeable and reassuring and made me feel like I was in the absolute best hands. I saw her weekly and have only good things to say about her. She was kind and smart and made sure my baby was born healthy. I cannot recommend her enough!
