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.

Clinic very busy and long wait times, she had more time for patients when she was at her previous clinic. She is a wonderful doctor however, one of the best in our area. She will be honest, even if it’s difficult to hear. She has an ability to catch and treat what other doctors miss or brush off. Again, the only issue is the clinic she is at- I always dread going there.

The fact that she was unable to read the difference between a scheduled screening, according to all documents provided, and a diagnostics review, was very disappointing. This inability to distinguish between the two types of procedures cost us over $2K.
