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.

I received a liver transplant at Dr. Pelletier's hand in November of 2014 in a smooth an uneventful operation. From the very beginning my care was superb. His obvious competence helped to soothe my anxieties, he answered my questions in a way I could understand, he made clear my expectations for the future, and has since been proven correct. I'm fine, in great health, thanks largely to this gifted man. I can't imagine a better surgeon; UVA is lucky to have him--I lucked out having him.
