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.

One of the reviews I read about Dr Brown was that he didn't have a good beside manner. I found the opposite to be true. He was very thorough and explained what was going on in my case very well while taking plenty of time with me to answer my questions. Nor did he jump at surgery as the fix to my problem like many surgeons will do. I will definitely use Dr. Brown in the future.
