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.

Barely saw the doctor. Was condescending, rude and dismissive. Was antsy and didn't listen. Kept looking at the clock. Didn't explain anything. I would never, ever suggest this monster to family or friends. If I could give this rude, mean person 0 stars I would because 1 is too nice. When it was time to visit again, got a letter that they were triaging and I wasn't important enough to see anymore. What the literal heck?? Seriously? What is wrong with this place?

If I could give this doctor 0 stars I would. This is the absolute worst doctor I have ever had. I have about 12 doctors currently due to several autoimmune diseases. I developed diabetes in the last couple months due to family hereditary and already having Addison’s disease. This doctor actually accused me of over taking my steroids for Addison’s and said I caused my diabetes! It’s not even possible she prescribed my medication and there is no way I could have logically done this. Than she told me that if I didn’t sign a contract saying that I would take my medication as prescribed that I was going to be terminated as a patient. I called the clinic and told them that I cannot sign something that is not true! And explained that this is totally illogical that I cannot over take my medication. They just sent me a certified letter dismissing me from their clinic and never even return my phone call. These people don’t care about human beings, they only care about your money.
