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.

Amazing care throughout our ordeal with finding out my husband had an acoustic neuroma. The surgery took twice as long as we expected, but everything before, during and after went great. I am very happy with how quickly we were able to schedule the surgery and my husband's level of care while in the UNC Chapel Hill hospital. My husband had a pretty large brain tumor and it wasn't easy but they took wonderful care of him. Dr Ewend and his team are amazing. Very thankful!

Dr. Ewend operated on me twice in 1999. When I first met Dr. Ewend, like anyone else, I was scared to even think about brain surgery. His mannerism and his confidence that he could take care of my tumor/cyst calmed me greatly. I would recommend Dr. Ewend to anyone.
