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.

I was not impressed at all. After taking many prescribed tests I was excited for my next visit. He said he would have a program for me to follow that would make me feel better. On second visit he hardly spoke. He sat at his computer. I assumed he was looking at my test result. All of the sudden he got up, said he would be right back. That was the end of the visit. He never returned. I will never return either.
