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 manners. And possibly thinks the world of himself, pushed for a treatment, would not lower the dose of the treatment even at the request of a fellow oncologist. Finished the treatment "successfully", with CT showing mass shrunk! Come to find out during surgery mass got bigger!!! And when he found out, "oh I'm sorry, good luck..." one mistake from there doctors who think they're God, cost a life...

This doctor has an extremely hard time keeping appointments with his patients. If you have a 9:00 appointment don't bother showing up until 11:30. This seems to be a habit with him. All 18 times I've seen him he has never kept an appointment.
