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.

superb clinician- husband had Afib for several years-she did an ablation and he is now 4 months out, feeling great and able to resume activities he hasn't done in at least 2 years. She and her staff went to great lengths to make sure we understood every facet of the procedure along with risks and benefits. I am so grateful!

Dr. Ritvo did a catheter ablation on my wife yesterday, with apparent success. After the procedure was complete she explained clearly what she and her team found and what they did.
