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.

My son has been a patient of Dr. Murphy’s for a couple years now and we can’t say enough good things about him! He is full of so much knowledge and experience and has taken the time to get to know my son while also trying to figure out how to best treat him. We are eternally grateful for Dr. Murphy and all he’s done for our family.
