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.

Since I have been a patient with this office they have had a huge turn over of staff. They had scheduled me for an appointment several times not informing me that I wasn't going to be seen by any medical staff to discuss procedures I had recently had, waited 2hrs to be handed prescriotiins. Difficult to get non-narcotic refills taken care of.
