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.

Dr. Folk isolated and treated me for a seldom-seen bacterial lung infection and, in consultation with Dr. Brandon Bowers, was able to treat me successfully with an antibiotic, which was made more difficult because I am allergic to many antibiotics. Together they included me in their course of treatment, and I was able to leave the hospital after 4-1/2 months. I cannot say enough good things about either of them.
