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 am very satisfied with the care I received under Dr. Kistler for 2-3 years. Very professional. He was right on in identifying my issues and getting to the point. He is reserved (there were times I thought he could say more) but the words he speaks are of great value. I greatly appreciate his help in identifying past trauma, increasing my confidence, getting through emotional times, and later listening to my babble. His wisdom and calm, reserved, nature was very comforting
