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 felt he was rude and condescending. As a family member I am appalled by his treatment of my sibling under his treatment. When I provided information about medications that she has had dangerous reactions to he blew me off and try to deflect the question by putting a guilt trip on me asking when I saw this family member last. My impression is he uses these lines on families who question his practices. He is one of the worst doctors I've ever dealt with.
