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. Kominek fused me from C2 through T1. I still have full neck function without any pain. She literally saved my life and I will forever be grateful for her! Thank you for everything!

From the minute my brother was admitted Dr. Kominek was on top of his testing and discovered the problem, and had him in surgery quickly. The surgery couldn't have gonna better and he is recovering wonderfully. She was very patient in explaining everything that was going on, great bedside manner. Our family very highly recommends Dr. Kominek.
