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.

Dr. Yao, Eva, and the rest of the staff have been very pleasant to work with. Where I would normally have anxiety, I'm always put at ease and know exactly what to expect and what they will be working on. I often look forward to my next visit here.

Eric was very considerate in walking me through the procedure and during the whole operation. It completed smoothly as far as I can tell and I did not experience any discomfort. Good experience.
