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.

It seemed like Dr. Aaron truly never cared about my issues or what I was going through. He would constantly cut me off mid sentence when explaining what was going on, and would have me get tests that made no sense. He would then be shocked when the tests came back with no significant results. When talking to him over the phone he was extremely reluctant to tell me anything and would just ask "still experiencing discomfort?" which the obvious answer is yes, I wouldn't be getting these tests if something wasn't wrong. He would answer with "well I need to see you in the office again" This happened a few times until I was fed up with this behavior. Got to the point where I was completely convinced whatever I had was undetectable and untreatable, and that it was never going to get better. The past few years with Dr. Aaron was nothing short demoralizing and a waste of time.

Karen from dr Aaron's office called to schedule my appointment. After explaining why my colonoscopy had to be done at the hospital, she went ahead and made it for his other location. I questioned her because she made it clear that it had to be done at the hospital. She spoke to me like I was the slow kid. I put in for the time off at work. Twelve days later I received a call telling me the appointment had to be rescheduled because it had to be done at the hospital. Incompetent staff!
