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.

Not Honest Regarding Prognosis
We were given a guarded prognosis that my husband could live a few more years. Blood work every 3 weeks indicated my husband's liver functions were failing and we still weren't told by Dr. Gaitanis that death was just a few weeks away. After a complication from treatment and a trip to the ER dept. we finally received answers.
