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 Karnes performed life saving surgery on me in June of 2019. My family and I will be forever grateful. My latest C-11 Pet Scan just came back clear. That is with no hormone therapy! Thank you to Dr Karnes and his very capable team.

I had a radical retropubic prostatectomy on November 17, 2016. Everything went well, no complication after the surgery and I recovered in the predicted time frame. Dr Jeffrey Kames was very professional and spent sufficient time with me before and after the surgery.
