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.

She was extremely rude and uninterested in my care. She was late to my appointment and left within 10 minutes of entering the exam room. Each time I asked a question she snapped back at me like I was bothering her. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. She is very unprofessional and gives WVU medicine a bad name.
