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.

Sometimes Dr. Leo is running behind. That is because he takes time and listens to everyone and he addresses what needs to be addressed. Sometimes he may be with me and it makes him run behind. I just always know when I wait on him that he is blessing someone with the good job that he does.
