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.

Dr, Lemon treated my mom and now my wife. He is amazingly knowledgeable and positive and REALLY works hard for his patients. He is clear in his explanations and plans and respects the intelligence of his patients. IN both my mom and my wife's cases he literally pulled them back from the brink of death. He has earned my respect with unwavering confidence and it is impossible to exaggerate just how highly I would recommend him to anyone fighting cancer. He is a rarity. If you are sick with cancer then you need this doctor.

Dr. Lemon is patient-centered and collaborative. He demonstrates compassion for his patients, and never "talks down" to them. Skilled oncologist. I transferred to him after having an adverse experience with another oncologist and couldn't be happier!

Dr. Lemon is a very kind man that takes the time to know his patients. He has always kept me informed of what type of treatment he recommended and took the time to explain the path of treatment I would need. Going to see him is always a positive experience. Dr. Lemon is more like the doctors in a small town than in a large clinic.
