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.

Disappointing teleconference that yielded zero Insights. My calcium score is 1380; I’m in the 99th percentile for an imminent cardiac event so naturally concerned about my options. The doctors’ sage advice, after referencing a ‘Cardiac Shield’ which he tried but failed to pull up on his computer, was to watch my diet, excercise, reduce stress, optimize dental and mental health and keep on keeping on--generalities most cardiac patients are aware of but lacking any specifics. I was expecting more from the Mayo.
