Are there guidelines for writing a review?

Should I include my alternative health provider’s name in my review?
No. Including provider’s names threatens the credibility of reviews and creates the potential for spamming. If you include the name of your provider or provider’s clinic in your review, the details may either be obscured by our staff or the review may go unpublished. If you had a positive experience with your alternative therapy provider, consider letting him or her know about our upcoming “Provider Connect” service which will help users to find local providers offering alternative therapies.
