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.

We so appreciate when a doctor takes the time and talks to our child at her level. It has helped not only build her confidence in speaking for herself regarding her care, it also helps ease her anxiety.

Was not impressed with Dr. Varier's bedside manner. He made me feel like what was wrong was my son was completely my fault. It was a humiliating experience for both my son and I. My son was extremely uncomfortable (above and beyond what a 13 year old would feel). Hope to switch to someone with a little more patient sensitivity despite his obvious expertise. The staff here is terrific however as they were extremely friendly and helpful.
