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.

Amazing Orthopedic Surgeon. He did a rotator cuff repair, a clavicle debridement, and a bicep tendon reattachment on my shoulder 3 months ago. This scar looks great. I wish I would have had him as a doctor when they did my other shoulder. I highly recommend him to anyone who is suffering from debilitating shoulder pain.

After years of bone on bone knee pain Dr Summers gave me my life back. He replaced both knees a year apart and now I'm pain free to return to my active lifestyle. I have referred many people to Dr Summers. He has an excellent Medical Assistant who responds very quickly by phone or email. He has been very thorough with all my ortho needs for the last 12 years. 110% trust!
