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.

The billing/office manager is very rude. She called me crazy saying I didn't know what I was talking about. When I called her back after speaking to my bank, she said she never called me crazy, she was more professional than that and said I was putting words in her mouth. She then hung up on me. You wait on hold for over 5 minutes anytime you call there. You need to always follow up to get anything done or get a result of a test.
