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.

Two days ago, Dr. Watkins inserted 2 more stents in my husband's heart during a 90-minute cardiac catheterization. Alongside him was Dr. Abernathy, an M.D. and surgical fellow. As a professor who long worked for a university which had a med school, I've known and consulted more surgeons than most people, & was impressed by Dr. Watkin's consummate skill and by the clarity with which he and Dr. Abernathy explained what they'd done and why. These gentlemen are GEMS.
