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.

God’s gift to us
I never write reviews but I hope others may be blessed like we have been. Not enough words to express how grateful we are for Dr McLaren and his staff. Dr McLaren has gone above and beyond in his care of our grandson since the very first time we met him. He cares deeply about children and all of their individual needs….not just whether or not they are sick. He and his entire staff have given great care to two frequently overwhelmed grandparents as well. Thank you all!

Dr Mclaren is the most thoughtful and thorough doctor. He talks to you like he has all day for you but the appointment is also super efficient so the kids don't feel like theyve spent all day at the drs. He is the best.

Both of my boys go to Dr. McLaren and being a nurse I'm hard to impress. He has taken very good care of them. He is thorough and takes the time to answer questions. The boys are not afraid of him and enjoy the visits from the time we enter until we leave.

Would not recommend very condescending. Maybe he just does not care or maybe he is just that sharp.
