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.

Excellent in every way. Extraordinary availability. Always minimum wait time. His nurse practitioner is one of the best around. Most of his staff has been with him his whole career. Excellent follow through. Ila, his coordinator is extremely efficient. He does charge a yearly fee to medicare patients. A++++ all around. I have been his patient since 1987. But it is absolutely worth it.
