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.

He is not very professional when dealing with younger patients. I have been to the cardiologist since I was 21 and when I went to see him, at 22 years old, he treated me as if I was a child who didn't understand anything. He acted like I had no right to decisions about my own body.

I have been a patient with Piedmont Cardilogy since 2012. During the course of my appointments, I have had the opportunity to meet almost every physician within the practice. I believe it is important that doctors demonstte a caring and compassionate attitude. I also believe that treating others with respect and attentiveness is essential, especially physicians. With that being said, I wiould not recommend family or friends. My latest visit was upsetting to say the least!
