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.

Recently had surgery with Dr Chae. Had a great experience overall with both him and his staff. He was very patient and kind in his preparation for my surgery. The surgery and the recovery was much better and faster than I expected. Overall I am very happy with my experience.

I cannot confidently say that I trust in what this man had to say about my diagnoses or procedure. He was not only arrogant but made me feel stupid for asking questions. I switched to a different doctor within the Kaiser network and much better. Their opinion was for a less invasive surgery instead of what this idiot recommended and I’m all good now. So many doctors to chose from...avoid him please. Bad bad doctor.
