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 had so much pain in my feet from arthritis and plantar fasciitis. It was also causing horrible pain in my legs. I am very active so of course these issues were really cramping my lifestyle. Over three visits thus far, Dr. Braren has changed my life. I have no leg pain and my feet are so much better than before. I'm still a work in progress but he definitely has me on the right path. I would/will recommend him to anyone I know who needs his expertise! Thank you Dr. Braren
