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.

Unfortunately Dr. Black is now retired, but he was a terrific doctor for my renal needs and pre and post kidney transplant. He has a great personality and bedside manner, and weird but good sense of humor. He was my Nephrologist for 39 years. He was also interested in research which made him extremely knowledgeable. I will miss him very much.
