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.

Not terribly proactive for all health needs
Be ready to do your own research for specialty Drs. I feel she is 'not comfortable' with issues mature patients have. If you have a condition that is genetic, she is 'not comfortable' with treating you. I'd look for a provider with more experience for the chronically ill, or genetic issues. If you are 20-40 with no previous illness, she's fine. If you are in need of a provider with some experience, keep looking.

I love my new PCP Dr. Askarinam!!! She is so nice and has an answer for everything I ask. She was very thorough when explaining things to me and I could not have asked for a better doctor. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and everyone.
