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.

Thorough, explicit, efficient, kind, very knowledgeable and asks for my feedback and input in decision making. I know that he is completely engaged with me and my medical care; a very proactive doctor. Very much a patient advocate; current with the latest research and is open to me as a patient sharing research and studies relevant to my diagnosis. Encourages patients who want to obtain a second opinion; I appreciated that. Can't recommend highly enough.
