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.

This was my first visit to Dr. Hecker for my Third Class Aviation Medical review. He took the time to review both my past and present information and then performed all necessary testing required by the FAA. Very pleasant to talk with and has a through knowledge of the FAA requirements. Receptive to all my questions and he made me feel very relaxed. I'll be going back for sure.
