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.

My bp has never been under control until meeting with Dr Slim. He encouraged me to get checked for sleep apnea as a way to reduce my med intake. Now on CPAP and sleeping great. Great Dr! My only complaint is not with him but Pulse. When I first experienced heart issues, pulse was very slow to get me in. It was like 2 months. Unacceptable.
