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.

He's the best doctor. He comes and gets me out of the waiting room when he is there early and his staff isn't there yet. Always wants me comfortable and taken care of. He's amazing. Very down to earth and loves talking about his grandkids. :)

Very genuine and truly cares for you as his patient. Takes his time and answer all of my questions, and I tend to ask a lot of questions. I don't have one negative thing to say about him nor his staff.
