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.

Incompetent boob who has no idea what the surgery is for on the day of the surgery. No notes, no photos, no recollection of our previous meeting, no preparation or clue about what he would be cutting out the day of the surgery. STAY AWAY! He should not be near a scalpel.

A great doc. I never felt rushed during the exam. He took his time to ask me questions and he GAVE me time to answer. A good sense of humor. Granted I had a small issue, but I was worried. He definitely gave me piece of mind.
