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. CAnos is knowledgeable, compassionate, he listens and he really cares. I would rate him as the best doctor I have ever had, not to demean the other excellent physicians I have seen, but he really is that good. His nurse practitioners and office staff are also wonderful; I have never felt rushed or patronized.
