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.

More than 4 years ago I had an enlarged prostate so severe I was unable to pass urine. Today my prostate problems are past history and the main reason is Doctor Edson. I like his professionalism and attention to details. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. The only drawback is his receptionist from hell and the only reason I stopped making appointments to see him. If he ever changes receptionists, I'll be back.
