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.

On my last visit I casually mentioned a small growth on my buttocks that was hanging by a thread. I told Dr. Andersen that I was so squeamish I failed to get up the courage to snip it off myself (and this a number of times over several years). Dr. Andersen immediately warned me that snipping it off myself was not recommended. He proceeded to have his assistant freeze the area; then he removed it and gave no charge for the procedure.
