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 tell you this caring, loving & excellent Doctor is one in a million !! He has saved my life 4 times. So smart, intelligent & the BEST physician I have ever had !! He has been caring for me since 1980. I am the luckiest patient ever !! He has a great sense of humor & outstanding bed-side-manner. I've seen a ton of doctors over the years, he puts 99.9% of them to shame. I love him with all my heart & he feels like family !!??
