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.

Truly incredible experience as far as doctor visits go. They are so friendly, got me in so quickly and the doctor actually let me talk and explain my problem. Shortly afterwards, he did an exam and told me a diagnosis. He spent a ton of time explaining everything to me and made me feel confident that I knew what was going on and what we are going to do to fix it. I really appreciate it!
