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.

An excellent physician and Mohs surgeon. He has treated me outstandingly with Basal Cell, Squamous Cell and Melinoma skin cancers. All have been caught early with skin checks.

I have been seeing Dr. Rkein for months now and he is incredible. He’s very knowledgeable, personable, thorough, and kind. He answered all my questions and I never felt rushed at any time. He really listens to your concerns and you both come to whatever decision needs to be made together. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who needs to see a Dermatologist. Plus he’s the Mohs surgeon and his results after surgery are awe inspiring. I know I’ll always go to him for any surgery I need don

I love Dr. Rkein! He is so knowledgeable and at the same time super personable. He really makes you feel comfortable and he explains everything in a very easy to understand manner. He is efficient, without making you feel rushed. I'm a patient of his and I also have taken three of my children to him because I have the utmost trust and confidence in him. I wish every doctor was like Dr. Rkein.
