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.

Dr. Rastle takes the time to listen to me and address the concerns I have about health and well-being. He is exceptionally thorough and sees the big picture. I like how personable he is, too. It's unusual for a physician to have so many great qualities: Experience, professionalism, a keen understanding of what's causing your symptoms, and attention to detail in treating them. I appreciate that he has a wonderful sense of humor! That isn't necessary for a doctor to get high marks but it helps!!!
