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 went to see Dr. Forney earlier this year for a full body check. I liked the convenience of her Saturday hours. I even had my husband take my 9 year old daughter in to spot check her head. As a medical practitioner himself, he wasn’t impressed. Today, I went in for a spot check for a place on my back. My young daughter was with me. The receptionist was quick to firmly reprimand me on the way I was wearing my mask and appeared offended when I declined the hand sanitizer. Then, after consultation with the doctor, she told me I’d have to leave and reschedule my appointment because my minor child who had nowhere to go was with me. While I am a big proponent of choice, I’m disappointed that this practitioner chooses to prioritize fear, rules and her own needs over the grace and flexibility needed to care about the diverse health needs and situations of others. As such, thus is not a practice we would recommend or frequent again.

Dr. Cornet is rude and doesn’t want to receive calls after hours of the emergency is not deemed an emergency in her eyes. I am almost in tears after speaking with her...

She is THE BEST. Smart, medical knowledge, kind, good listener, sense of humor. The whole package. I’ve seen her for almost twenty years for medical and aesthetic dermatology.
