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.

Does not review medical history, Forms opinion before entering room for first time. Wants to make money on his tests by selling fear and negativity to pad his pockets. If you want you child to be afraid, this is the MD for you!! He must make a lot of money for SSM based on his ordering criteria.

He did not want to get a full understanding of my child's health history. He was quick to jump to conclusions and recommend expensive testing.
