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.

Great doctor. Performed my weight loss surgery. He didn’t explain in detail the complications of the weight loss surgery overall but he is willing to answer any questions or worries you may have. When you go to a seminar a ton of info IS provided. As a surgeon he is top notch! I’m very satisfied with my experience. I continue to see him a year after my surgery.

It was the worst experience of my life. The receptionist scheduled my appointment at 9:00 am. I wasn't seen until 10:00. The doctor came in looked at my lumps. TOLD ME STAGE ONE CANCER IS 1'm or less STAGE TWO CANCER IS 1'm to 3mm. STAGE 3 is 3'mm or more .STAGE 4 cancer is the same but in different locations. He told me I needed to go and have surgery ASAP. I went to a vascular surgeon thank god..I'm fine.. I was going out of my mind for weeks..WORST EXPERIENCE

Sketchy Doctor and shady practice. Doesn't explain anything and just wants to charge you RIDICULOUS amounts of money. Do not trust any of them... RUN before they do irreversible damage AND rob you!
