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.

From SMOC, I have seen Dr Guinand, who I followed from another center. I like his mannerisms and how he proactively deals with the current and future issues. On the other two doctors I've met with (Dr Rapp which I will never see again) and Dr Iiams, I've been searching for other alternatives.
