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, excellent listener. I love that he takes time to explain all the options and admits what is known and not known for treating difficult conditions. Great resource for treating my systemic uveitis/scleritis. You may have to wait a bit in the office, but it's worth it since they take the necessary time with all patients.
