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.

We were wary after reading the negative reviews about Dr Polussa, but we chose him as my dad's PCP because he did home visits and my dad in his infirm state was very hard to take to doctor offices. Apart from his coming to our parents' apartment which was very convenient and helpful, he was also highly accessible on his cell phone (how many US doctors actually give you their cell No.?) and responsive to our calls for help. For non emergencies he would visit in 2-3 days (I think so he could combine appointments and see his other patients in the same senior living complex - perfectly reasonable thing to do) but was willing to come the same day if it was an emergency, as happened once. He may not be the most polished in bedside manner, and I can't say if he's up with the latest medical advances, but he served our purpose very well. He took the initiative to look through all of dad's many medicines currently prescribed for him by various doctors over time, and then drastically pared them
