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've been taking my mother to her appointments with Dr. Schmitz for the past few years, every since she was no longer able to drive. We are both always treated so nicely by him, his nurse, everyone! Great doctor!

I saw Dr. Schmitz for the first time 5 years ago for my colonoscopy after I turned 50. I felt perfectly healthy but was diagnosed with colon cancer. The care and compassion I received from Dr. Schmitz is unmatched. He made sure that my wife and I understood everything about the diagnosis and the steps I would take going forward. Dr. Schmitz provided comfort in a very scary situation and I refer all of my friends and family to him.
