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.

UPDATE: One year later, I have a scar from a non-surgical procedure from this doctor. Before and during the process, she said ALL issues will eventually resolve. When bringing up the darkened area weeks after, she was belittling by saying, "We have to be adults and be patient." I believe one year is being patient enough. Now, I am left with a 2 inch scar in the middle of my face, that concealer doesn't even cover adequately. Her lightening cream, with the crumpled, taped on label doesn't work on it either. I'd rather have the original problem I went to her for. The dermatologist I saw recently said only go to a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon for injections, as they are experts in skin, and all associated complications resulting from their work. This doctor is clearly NOT an expert in skin. Beware!
