We are committed to true transparency. However, to ensure the comments are fair and correctly attributed, we review each one before posting to the website. We exclude entire comments that disclose patient's protected health information, are off-topic, or include other confidential or inappropriate content.

Comments are shared internally for education purposes to ensure that we are doing our very best for the patients and families for whom we are privileged to care.
