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. Tate was took the time to speak with me and even discuss a medication that hadn’t been working for me right before all the issues occurred that led me into his care. He follows up and has answered the questions I have had. They do so promptly and professionally, allowing me to not feel bothersome.
