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.

Went in for my first check up. Overall, it went well until I saw my bill. I would not recommend him/ or the provider he works for to anyone who has a HDHP. He charged $273 for "Established patient office" in addition to "Initial new patient preventive medicine eval" for $385. Fortunately my insurance covered the second fee but not the first one so I had to pay over $300 out of pocket for a regular check up.

I saw him today for the first time, and I thought he was WONDERFUL!! He is very intelligent, very personable and extremely kind and reassuring. He has no problem with You asking him questions (he actually encourages it!) and he takes the time necessary to answer your questions clearly and thoroughly. I left there feeling very glad I chose him as my ‘primary’ physician. (My husband was so impressed, he actually made an appointment for himself because he liked him better than his current doctor.)
