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.

My visit with Dr. Rafael the day before my implant was very informative. The pros and cons of having the procedure were explained in layman’s language and ultimately made the decision to have the procedure done. Next day the pacemaker was put in and so far so good !

Dr. Rafael put my ICD into my chest at Good Sam ICU. He called my wife Jackie and explained the process and answered her questions. I am very fortunate to be alive and recovering from cardiac arrest. Many thank you to everyone at Good Sam and especially to Dr. Rafael!

I am a 76 year old retired RN. He listens and answers all concerns. He, is thorough, comforting and after cardiac ablation answered my 1:20 AM call. I'm confident I chose the right doc for procedure and I'm out 10 days from surgery and feeling better every day.
