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. Brakeman is, by far, the best doctor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He’s intelligent, informative and kind. My daughter has been in his care since she first had kidney issues. She has gone thru 18 months of dialysis and a kidney transplant. She absolutely loves Dr. Brakeman. I know he must be very busy but he somehow makes us feel like we are the only patients in the world. He sits and talks to me as long as I need. He has been a bright light for us in a rather dark time in our lives. He has given my daughter Mira a second chance at life. We are very blessed to have him in our lives.
