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.

Ortho Clinic Visit
Dr Bruce reviewed my history of sciatica, checked an X-ray of my left hip, and completed an exam to be sure my neuro status was not compromised. He was professional, very open with me, and basically treated me like an old friend. I couldn’t have asked for better care!

Knee replacement did not work
Had knee replacement. Does not feel better. Have returned he said it is fine. Why does it still hurt. No answer. He said I need the other knee done. I am afraid to do it. I am in pain all the time.
