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 office and staff keep getting worse! They make changes without notifying the parents such as closing down the office you are supposed to have your appointment at or being closed for phone calls all day when you were told to call back to check the status of your child's referral! When you finally do get ahold of someone they are rude or place you on hold forever. When you are there for an appointment people who have appointments after you get called back first and after two hours of waiting i
