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.

Dr. Abai was amazing. Through an ultrasound he found my problem immediately. An operation was scheduled and my artery was repaired and now blood is flowing back to my calf and foot. Dr. Abai was courteous and professional. I could not have asked for a better doctor.
