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.

For my last physical, nobody at the office knew that I was coming in for one. After some work with reception, she found the right information on the appointment. Then when I encountered the nurse, she didn't know. Then I encountered the doctor, he didn't know. Because of the confusion, a couple of things in a physical were overlooked. Also, no joke or exaggeration, every single med request requires multiple calls.

He likes to go into patients rooms at 5:00 a.m. in the morning and tell them that they have stage 4 cancer, mind you with no family around or any type of support system. This was not on one occasion with my family, but 2, within 1.5 years . At no point with either of my parents has had a biopsy nor a diagnosis from anyone. If you’re looking for a compassionate doctor please don’t pick this doc you will be disappointed. Trash ..Unfortunately likely hood of me recommending him would be a 0 but One
