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.

This is regarding the car for my mother. She has pain due to treatment but Dr Rokkam doesn't want to do treat her pain but instead she wants to pawn her off onto someone else. Pain management already turned her away because they don't treat cancer patience and they only perform infections or therapy. She Aves like she doesn't even listen to what my mom tells her. Dr Rokkam only wants to do what Dr Rokkam wants to do.

Felt kind of scared at first, but the nurse and Dr., made me feel less anxious. Learned a lot, took my blood, will find out results in a week or so.
