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.

They put things on your credit without telling you that you even have a bill. 2 years after my daughter was a patient here!

Long, long crazy waits. Also, billing department inputs wrong codes making you pay for things your insurance would pay for it if coded right. Worst customer service, the office never gets back to you.
