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.

After years of treating my mother, he failed to provide timely and personal care. She was discharged from the ER with instructions to contact her PCP and obtain a referral to a cardiologist. Contacted Dr Elami's office immediately, almost a week later no response other to change medication (over the phone) without so much as an exam. After a week, a home health nurse was sent, with no ability to examine her. The next day we brought my mother back to the ER, where she was admitted immediately.
