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. De Castro is an excellent oncologist. He treated me for leukemia years ago. He and his team saved my life, and I'm eternally grateful for it. He has an excellent bedside manner and I've grown to trust his judgment completely when it comes to my medical care. He and his staff have always looked out for me and taken great care of me. I could not recommend him enough.
