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.

Dr. E is AWESOME!! I am so thankful to have found a kind physician who listens carefully, thoughtfully approaches complex problems and is receptive to all feedback. I am a retired physician who practiced medicine for 40 years so I have been around many physicians as colleagues. This man is exceptional - he is the kind of physician you want on your team!

I am a patient of Dr E. He does accept United Health Care as that was my insurance company. He is very thorough, kind, respectful and listens to all your concerns. I love his new office in Trussville. He was recommended by our urologist and both of us are very pleased with him.

My heart doctor recommended Dr. E (as everyone calls him). When I saw he was affiliated with Alabama Internal Medicine, I was a bit apprehensive as I had horrible experience with another doctor in the practice. Dr. E was exactly the kind of doctor that I was hoping for. Very compassionate and thorough. I did not feel rushed at all. Couldn't be happier with this doctor!
