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 brought my mother-in-law to see Dr. Spinks for worsening low back pain. He took time to review and teach, not just about the surgical treatments, but a comprehensive approach to my mother-in-law’s pain. I would strongly recommend Dr. Spinks, not just for surgical repair of back problems but for a thorough approach to management. My mother-in-law may still get surgery, but we are pursuing all options as part of workup, and feel secure that the approach is ideal, thanks to Dr. Spinks guidance.

As a retired professional nurse I have high expectations of the professionalism, skills, knowledge, care, and communications that occur when I am evaluated for a medical condition. The thoroughness of care I receive at each medical visit is excellent. Dr. Spinks listens completely and is very easy to talk with. He explores all beneficial options and his explanations are very clear. I highly recommend Dr. Spinks, he has exceeded my expectations!
