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. Varela is an absolutely amazing doctor/ person. We had the pleasure of working with Dr. Varela when she was in Philadelphia. Sadly our son Tommy was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 4 on Christmas Day but Dr. Varela walked us thru everything and held our hand. I can happily say my son is healthy now and every year we receive a Christmas card from Dr. Varela, we will never forget her and she will always be a part of us.
