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 had an initial appt scheduled very quickly. After the appt, I was told they would need to submit for approval with my insurance. 2 weeks later I called twice and didn't get a return call til the day after the second call, and they didn't seem to have listened to my messages because they thought I was trying to make a new patient appt. I then received another call saying they needed to resubmit for approval with a different form and they should hear back in 1-2 business days. I tried calling them the day after that time frame and did not receive a call back. I called my insurance and was told the approval was given 2 days prior. I am very dissatisfied with how this has been handled. I understand possible delays due to covid-19, but this appears to be disorganization and carelessness more than anything else.
