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 am new to the area & wasn't sure who to see. Dr. Rickoff did an excellent job with my colonoscopy & found a flat polyp. They are usually very hard to find and often turn cancerous. I can't say enough about Dr. Rickoff--his bedside manner, the time he took with me in the office, and his support in follow-up. His RN & staff are very helpful. Thank you!
