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.

Incredibly rushed and interrupted even though I'd travelled across the country to see. Weeks after visit, there were still no notes available. Did not reply for weeks to message and then only by curt response - through an assistant. Recommended drug that shown in published research to cause dementia, but didn't know this and insisted "well tolerated" - despite contrary in JAMA neurology.
