Comment Policy

, Comment PolicyWe encourage your comments on our various blogs and social media pages, and hope you will join our discussions. Please be aware that we can’t respond to every comment, particularly those that deal with individual medical cases and issues. We also review all comments before they’re posted, and those that are off-topic or clearly promoting a commercial product will be removed.

We also strive to maintain a level of civility within our blogs and social media pages. While comments that disagree with posts or other comments or present an alternate viewpoint are fine, mutual respect for all participants must be maintained and profanity or abusive language is not allowed at any time.
