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.

Was not sure about the MOHS technique when I went to the office. Dr James spent the time to explain the procedure in detail and then provide me assurrance that the odds of success were over 95% and I would probably not need plastic surgery ( the operation was on my face). Althought the procedure does take a little longer, I felt comfortable that the cancer was gone when I left the office. The staff was great and he did a fine job. 2 weeks and you can't tell where the surgery was.
