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.

So because I was admitted to Cooley Dickinson for a week and missed 2 appointment with pain management/Dr Higgins Valid excuses, they still wont Reschedule mefor 6 months, they posted do not Reschedule in their PC, my primary wont prescribe even gabapentin a non narcotic or co trolled medication, let alone oxycodone. My surgeon tells me I definitely need them and to see my primary for help, I've exhausted weeks on this issue just banging my head against the wall. Screaming for help yet
