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 and informative
He took the time to listen and go over any results and options for my treatment. He gave me his opinion what I should do but let me know the decision was ultimately mine. Walked me thru each process or procedure. Made sure I had a very thorough understanding what was going on, benefits and risks.

He rushed in and out. Didn't listen well or ask questions. At end he just said "you can leave" while staring at his laptop. No bedside manner or care shown.
