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.

Horrible family physician. He doesn't even know how to do an annual physical/wellness exam. He reads lab results and done. No checks for ear, nose, throat, neck or anywhere else on the body and does a quick listen to the chest area. He asks no questions and he is not receptive to questions. And then there's the billing problems. Doubt I would return to Florida Medical Clinic for any reason.
