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 was referred to Arika from a family friend after the 1st NP I saw was terrible. Arika is WONDERFUL at what she does. She is understanding and truly helps you in any way possible. I was able to completely resolve my anxiety post heart attack and med complications and feel good again. Thank you so much. You were so nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. She is terrific!!!
