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.

Dr. Raphael was recommended by another patient, and everything about the experience was positive (well, except all the surgical removal of so much cancerous tissue ... but even that was done well, with little pain) I was impressed with how well Dr. Raphael listened and explained everything, including just what to do/instructions to call if any problems developed overnight after each surgery -which they didn't I highly recommend Dr. Raphael.
