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.

One of the brightest Doctor's I've met. Intelligence, common sense, great bedside manner. Takes time and goes above and beyond his duties and treats the entire person, not just the symptoms. Would not complain about anything about him. He's just the best in my opinion !!!

Saved my wife's life when she had a bad reaction to some combined antibiotics that just happened to coincide with an already scheduled appointment.
