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.

Excellent. He's been my elderly Mother-in-Law's Doctor for twenty years and watching them interact warms my heart! He treats her as good as we do here at home! A kind and goodhearted man!

The wait time for Dr. Tiu’s office is pretty unacceptable. I have had a total of 2 appointments with him so far, and I have had to wait 2 hours to be seen. Having to take time off of work, this is extremely inconvenient and inconsiderate.

I came in very nervous about my appointment, but the office staff made sure I was calm and relaxed before the doctor came in. Dr. Tiu is so great. He explains everything in a way that I understood and answered any questions that I had. I would recommend him to anyone that has any kind of breathing problems.
