"Dr. Lori has been my daughter's primary since she was 2. We have been with her for eight years. Dr. Lori takes the time to hear my daughter when we visit. She goes above and beyond to help. I highly recommend her!"

"Absolutely HORRIBLE experience......two major issues: 1) my kid's 15, and at his wellness visit, the doctor unceremoniously booted me (dad) from the room. No explanation, no prior warning, nothing. Just get out. Since my child is 15, the doctor had NO LEGAL RIGHT to make me, the legal guardian, leave! But not to cause a scene, I left the room and confirmed with the front desk that there is NO legal basis for them to make guardians leave their children during the examination. It was "just their practice" Then, as I walked back into my child's exam room, I found him holding a PEN in one hand and a urine sample bottle in another! Without any explanation or prior consent, the nurses were urging my child to sign a form agreeing to a Chlamydia test. Totally ILLEGAL! Needless to say, we will never go back. It's clear that this practice is willing to bend the law, or ignore it outright, to do what it wants to do to children. STAY AWAY!"

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
