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 ruined my life and retired overnight, while I’m left suffering. He injected my nerve root, botched a surgery and I ended up having a complete revision in less than 6 months. I have permanent nerve damage and I will never be the same.

I recently had a lumbar spine fusion done by Dr. Jensen. He patiently answered all my questions about the surgery. He and his staff are very professional and I was pleased with the way I was treated there. He seemed very knowledgeable about the procedure and had state of the art equipment at FMH. I would recommend Dr. Jensen to anyone.
