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.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr stephens for over 10 years. He takes time to listen to and answers everything you ask him. He is super at diagnosing problems. His bed side matter is awesome. I have never had a bad moment with him on my visits. If i could have this doctor for all my medical needs i definately would. choose him. One visit to him and you will not want to see another doctor.
