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.

I’ve been with Dr Bashir now almost 10 years. There is no other doctor that is a comprehensive and complete as him. It’s always a pleasure for him to care for you. I would recommend any dialysis patient to try him out.

I am forever grateful to Dr. Bashir and his wonderful staff. I had been having weeks of critical spikes in my blood pressure and Dr. Bashir agreed to see me even though his schedule was maxed out. His first instinct of my problem was right on and since then his treatment has stopped the spikes completely. I am feeling so much better and am so appreciative. Thank you, Dr. Bashir. I highly recommend this stellar physician.
