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.

Terrible bedside manner when dealing with a 20 year old. Pompous and arrogant would be the words I would use to best describe his mannerism. In addition, he has no tact or empathy. Seemed rush and thought his time was more important and this was because we were kind enough to reschedule with him after learning he needed to be elsewhere during our initial appointment. Did not take much time with patient and was quite condescending. Would NOT recommend.
