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.

Dr Brown transplanted my first kidney fifteen years ago. His patience and willingness to listen to his patients is the one specific characteristic that I remembered. This week I had fistula l placed in my arm and again I had the opportunity to be under his care. I have no doubt that his surgical skills are excellent and his bedside manner is outstanding. Truly a gentle man.
