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 man should be removed from practice. I have never in my life heard of a physician destroy every tenet of the Hippocratic oath. Can you imagine sending an 84 year old woman in for a scan which could determine life or death and then DISAPPEARING from contact for SEVEN DAYS without letting her know the results. Even the office staff was baffled at the cruelty. When he did finally surface, he answered no questions and pronounced there was nothing he could do for her. ZERO bedside manner. A FAIL
