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 waited three months to see Dr. Heimer for an appointment that was not cosmetic related. He was very nice, his staff was nice, my visit was great. I went home with a few prescriptions and tried them out for two months as we had discussed. At about month 3 I started having a bad reaction to one of the products that I am on and called to see if I could be seen as it was getting worse and spreading. I was told that they were booking in June... it is February. Now I have to find a new derm.
