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.

Very patient oriented - extremely competent - very thorough and he cares - always on time - prescriptions on target - information always timely. Got me to comeback from a precarious situation after a pneumonia episode to being as good as new. Very apt at giving patients strategies to avoid situations that might be hard to handle.
