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.

The tough love approach helped initially, but after a while, it was pointless. All he wants to hear is that you are doing fine. If another doctor or professional questions anything he says, he gets angry, makes angry phone calls, demands to see their credentials, etc. And don't EVER ask him to help fill out any paperwork, even if it's about medication he prescribed.
