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 can't say enough about how refreshing it was to find a doctor like Dr. Fitzhugh. He is more than just a doctor, he is a compassionate, understanding, and knowledgeable person who uses humor as part of his treatment. Can't ask for more than that from someone who hears negativity all day, every day. All doctors, no matter what their practice, should have Dr. Fitzhugh's disposition and approach to helping patients. And, his receptionist was just as animated and friendly!!!

It's impossible to get a call back from them, don't waste your time and just call a different doctor. I left several messages asking for a call back and I've never heard back now in several weeks. Very poor office apparently so I wouldn't trust them to return calls when in need.
