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.

Dr. Sears is the most caring and most competent chiropractor I know and I have known many. Regardless of what my problem is I always feel significantly better after he treats me. The reason why is he listens to my concerns and skillfully addresses them. I could never considere going to another chiropractor
