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.

Saw this doctor for an issue of chronic cosntipation with my toddler. Completely misdiagnosed my child, without performing any diagnostic tests/ lab work or X-rays. Prescribed not only incorrect but highly habit forming laxative medication. Would not recommend this doctor to anyone. Not to mention terrible bedside manner.
