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 Prieto operates on both of my shoulders and did a great job. He’s also a extremely nice, genuine person that took the time to explain the procedures to me before hand. I would recommend him with 2 thumbs up. He’s the best. Period.

Dr Prieto took time to listen to my concerns as well as explain the injury (left shoulder) and options for treatment. Surgery went great he was very supportive during recovery. The best experience I have had dealing with a doctor. Thank you for helping me get back to work so I could take care of my family.
