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.

It's really refreshing to meet a physician who takes the time to explain all aspects of weight loss - including a lot of the "why" overweight people make certain choices. Dr. Covington is thorough and knowledgeable but just as importantly, she is kind. She is willing to try different options until you find the one that works best. There is a huge difference between working with a specialist in bariatric medicine and a chain diet plan or basic advice from a primary care doctor. Highly recommend.
