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.

She is a fabulous Physician! She’s very smart and knows a lot about Neuromuscular disease! My boys got put on a newly released medication for Duchenne because of her. She had become aggressive in the fight for more research for Muscular Dystrophy. I’m a mom and a healthcare provider. I gave her 5 stars!
