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.

he is very thorough esp. compared to a GI i saw previously who could not find anything wrong with me despite a weight loss of 20 lbs and constant diarrhea. dr. lebwhol was able to determine that i have crohn's disease. he is old fashioned polite and takes whatever time is necessary to examine and talk with you. he persists until he finds out what is wrong.
