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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Dupee's since 1989 and he has been outstanding. He's always been available for acute care needs, has an outstanding bedside manner, he listens, and he has always surrounded himself with equally outstanding staff. I consider myself privileged to be included in his Tufts Medical Center practice.

While Dr.Dupee had his practice in Wellesley, he was the worst in the business. Unfortunately there were no other Geriatric specialist in the area . He was very rude and the most arrogant doctor I have been to. Truthfully, he was run out of town! His office was shut down with many of us left without notice or access to our medical records. Shocked he is still practicing legally! Shame on the medical profession. I was told he owed so much money that they allowed him to practice only to pay back.
