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.

He is an absolute gem. He diagnosed my mitochondrial disease after living undiagnosed for several years and has been on my treatment team ever since.. He truly cares for his patients.

He seems to be nice, but he easily dismisses things and doesn't delve into the problem. He missed my diagnosis
