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.

×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Sara Rasmussen, MD?
She was amazing. Our son was diagnosed with kidney cancer & she performed surgery the next day to remove his kidney, the navel orange sized tumor, & lymph nodes. She explained to him & us in detail what the plan was, admitted him to the hospital com that appointment, & then performed the surgery the following morning. That was 28 months ago & he is doing well with follow-ups every 6 months, but so far no more cancer on any of his scans. She saved his life. He was 13 years old at the time.
