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.

A very positive meeting. Two months ago, I was feeling very tired and we discussed the options going forward. I stepped up my weekly cardio exercise and am now feeling so much better, thanks to Dr. Appelby’s advice

He is the best cardiologist I have ever met. He is brilliant and remembers you and your issues each time he sees you for a visit. He is up to date on the science so he makes thoughtful decisions on your care. He is very personable and caring and devoted to each of his patients. He is one of only a few doctors that I actually look forward to seeing each time. He takes all the time needed to answer all your questions. His office location is clean and completely up to date. He truly is there to help!
