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. Schwartzman was so personable and informative from the time we met him in the E.R. when he came to introduce himself to me and mother who was suffering from bowel obstruction. He gave us his word and he stood by it. He's kind and consistent with his care and has a great team beside him. A surgery that could have taken hours took the one hour and 25 minutes. Thank you Dr. Schwartzman from the Davis family.
