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.

I've been taking my children to Dr. Hart since my oldest was born, almost 13 years. Her standard of care is above and beyond, my children adore her and actually look forward to going to the doctor, and I personally have learned so, so much from her. She is a wonderful pediatrician, and holds an irreplaceable spot in our lives.

Terrible. I would not recommend going to this doctor. So passive, and because of her lack of attentiveness, my daughter had to be transferred to a larger hospital where the staff actually did their job. I would not even give her one star, but I had to click at least one.

Can't recommend her enough. She is an advocate for immunizations which we strongly support.
