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.

Have been great since I started seeing him in 2003. Without him and his expertise I’m sure I would have died years ago.

Great doctor to work with, spends time to understand what is going on in my health and pays attention to what I experience, then checks with tests to identify courses of action, medications, etc.

Dr. Ditchey is a wonderful, caring Doctor! He explains things so you can understand them, includes you in decisions rather than telling you what he's going to do. He is very knowledgeable and a great diagnostician. He is a genuinely kind man that really cares about his patients.
