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 had taken my 87 yr old grandma to see him he had been her dr for about 6 months. She was being overmedicated. On one appointment he had told me she was just old. She was eventually put in a nursing home and they told us she would probably never go back home...After having her meds looked at and changed. She was her self again and came home. But he is just not a very caring dr. Does not give patients the care they deserve. Needless to say she has a new dr.
