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.

Dr. Smith went above and beyond addressing my husband's concerns about his asthma. Besides a full medical check up, he took the time to bring my husband and I into our office to discuss ALL possible options. He was professional but charismatic and had a light sense of humor fitting to the situation. I would happily recommend him and return to his office.
