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.

Dr. Parkinson seems great...if you ever actually see him. My wife was a pt there and we had a horrendous experience, with Jim taking her off all the medications she had been on for years, some of which cannot or should not be stopped immediately. She told him that she didnt feel like that was even feasable, and NOT reccomended by any doctor aside from him. He told her if she got depressed to "just serve others" apparently he is unaware of chemical imbalances abruptly stopping meds can create. She had a complete mental breakdown, nearly admitted to a psych ward.......needless to say, we will NEVER go back there. The office didnt call to check on her a single time, however are bombarding us now over paying them.....To sum things up, it seems they are extremely concerned about getting that $$$$ not so mich about the patient they advised to go off all meds. Save yourself the frustration, as well as the money.

All Dr are great but the office staff struggles. I have been a patient for 30 years. I recently received a call saying they were going to send me to collections. I never received a notice. I paid the bill on the spot. I’ve paid all bills over 30 years. So, with this I will be looking for a new Dr they need to look and see a bill has never NOT been paid.
