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.

Very cordial. Explained thoroughly what my procedure entailed. During the procedure (received a local anesthetic) Dr. Watson would tell me before step what he was going to do and what to expect. The total time for my surgery (removed a cyst on my forearm) was about 20 minutes. After 2 weeks the incision was barely noticeable. A follow-up appointment was made quickly.
