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.

We would not get anywhere with my appointments, just go over history and she's would write me a script for an antidepressant. Don't cancel an appointment (even if it's a week before the appointment because you had a death in the family and the funeral is being scheduled for the day of your appointment ) because she will tell you she is losing money that way. She also may hint/bring up politics or political agendas and may offend what you believe.
