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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Denham's for over 5 years. During that time she has consistently demonstrated not only the highest level of professionalism and expertise, but also extreme compassion and empathy; felt by both myself and my wife. Her responsiveness is extraordinary, as is her ability to hone in on the important issues. She's also not reticent to admit what she doesn't know (uncommon amongst many physicians). I feel lucky to have found her and would strongly recommend her to others.

She is one of the best doctor's I have ever had. She listens, she does not over-react and she knows that a lot of the cure rests with the patient. She shows great compassion but also knows that ultimately the patient needs to participate in their recovery and she will give you the road map. Great "bed-side" manner

Dr Denham is one of the only physicians we've seen who really listens to what's going on with you and doesn't jump to a pre-conceived diagnosis. She's straightforward and caring at the same time and we literally trust her with our lives.
