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.

Overpriveledged young doctor with no apparent time, or concern to follow up with patients, or to return patient calls, regardless of the severity of the condition. Don't waste your time or 650.00 dollars on this Doctor or clinic.

Dr. Heard was most respectful and informative. His "bedside" manner is one that is most appreciative from a patient viewpoint. I highly recommend him as your dermatology physician.

Very poor experience as a new patient with Dr. Cooper Heard. As I was waiting in exam room, I overheard him being unprofessional in the hallway, which lasted about twenty minutes. Then e completed a very brief exam and wrote a prescription. He was in my exam room less than 2 minutes. I was unable to ask questions. I was referred to him by a different specialist and I was overall very disappointed with him. Normal wait time in waiting room and the rest of staff was helpful.
