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.

I went to be treated by Dr Cucchiara and he either could not make a proper diagnosis, or didn't believe me when I described my severe symptoms. After a year of seeing him and not getting answers to my problems, I switched to a different physician who, on the very first visit, diagnosed me and started treatment which relieved my excruciating pain. Don't go here for treatment. Go to Johns Hopkins Hospital where there are better doctors.
