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. Albert has restored vision in both of my eyes due to a vitreous detachment. Considering the mechanics of the surgery, it is amazing how painless and how quick the recovery actually is. His staff is outstanding, the outpatient surgery center at UAB Callahan Eye is top notch and of course Dr. Albert is a fantastic doctor and surgeon and I’m picky.

Dr. Albert is the best! He not only saved my 25-weeker from blindness caused by ROP, but he is also the nicest and most humble doctor I've ever met. His staff is great, too, in both locations.
