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.

We made the trip up from CT to get a second opinion for our 9 yr old daughter who was recently diagnosed with moderate Crohn's disease. Dr Rufo spent over 2 hours answering and explaining every facet of Crohn's disease specific to our daughter. His attention to detail was second to none and his ability to simplify his explanations was truly a gift. Bottom line and most importantly, he made a frightened child feel more at ease with what her future holds. Mom and dad too!
