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.

She is the WORST. I don’t care what medical background she has her bedside manner is atrocious. It’s unfortunate she’s the doctor you have to deal with at Kessler when your family is going through a traumatic experience.

She is rude, abrupt, condescending and appeared disinterested. Too lazy to make a phone call when computers are down and lab results are needed.
