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. James was able to get my child’s asthma under control I give her that much credit that’s the only reason why she got 2 stars from me. However, if I could give her ZERO stars I would. Her bedside manner and her way of speaking to parents is terrible. She undermines you and talks down to you. My son is a teenager almost 18 and she talks to him as if he’s a 5 year old. I’ve been told by staff members that several parents have complained about the same problem because I thought it was just me. It definitely wasn’t.
