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 is so friendly and professional. He has performed surgery on my mom 3 times, twice at Lawrence Memorial hospital and once at Melrose Wakefield hospital. He called me 2 days before her surgery. Then he called me to inform me that her surgery was completed. He is an excellent surgeon and his staff are first rate.
