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 Alpert has been following me since 2003. His knowledge in this field is hands down the very best. He implanted a cardiac device in 2003 and It has proven to be very good. I trust him completely with all my cardiac problems and highly recommend him.

Told his office I wanted an appointment to discuss ablation for afib. He spent half an hour telling about afib and then told me he didn't do ablation anymore. Then he tried to sell me on a pace maker.
