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.

He talked about himself for an hour, never addressed why I was there, looked at my back through clothes without touching me and said I had had a trauma to my back, which wasn't true. I wasn't even there for back problems, I was there to talk naturopathy, and he said he wouldn't do consult on anything until I had my back x-rayed. I understand that alignment is important to all our body's "systems', but I can't believe I spent so much money to hear a man bloviate for an hour about how amazing he is while ignoring my health concerns and history. NOT a good listener, something I want in a doctor.

Dr Gear may request a full set of x-rays but remind him that he might want to also read the report that accompanies them. He failed to tell us about "Suggestion of focal osteolysis of the sixth rib near midaxillary line with an accompanying pleural-based mass (3.6 x 3.4 cm) which could represent a metastatic deposit for which a whole-body radionuclide bone scan is advised for further assessment." 3 weeks later my husband was diagnosed with a tumor in his spine.

He was nice, to the point, he explained all that I needed to know at the time.. He is full of knowledge and is eager to share what he knows. He took his time with us, never felt rushed.. He ran about 45 minutes behind, but it was such a great atmosphere, we didn't mind hanging around!! Ivy was wonderful.,Also full of knowledge.. I left with an order to have a whole lot of X-rays done, but this shows me that he is very thorough!
