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.

Dr. Daly repaired my mitral valve this past October. I have nothing but the highest praise for him. His response when I told him in person how pleased I was with my experience was to state that it was all of the people who surround him at St Mary's Hospital / Mayo Clinic who make him look good. He also is very proud of Normandale Community College, where he began his college career, and he is an example of the very highest of achievement from what most would consider to be a humble beginning.
