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 saved my life. He is an award winning doctor with a cool hipster wardrobe. I have no scar, but better yet I am alive. He is concerned and compassionate. Obviously he is just the best. Again, thank you Dr. P. for keeping me alive.

He is very smart and takes all the time you need. I have had him for years and will never switch...hope he never moves. He always remembers what we talk about and hugged me when I got bad news. Very sweet. like a dad type.

Surgery caused nerve problems that could be permanent. He mentioned small possibility of bleeding but glossed over the real risk of this in pre-op appointment. Don't expect quick service - expect to wait over an hour for some appointments. Difficult to reach
