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.

Don't bother to call, 1: they only take referrals, 2: if you need care, hopefully you'll live long enough to get an appointment 2-3 months from your first call. The staff person who answered my call was quite rude.

Dr. Chimenti was the on call cardiologist when I was brought into the ICU at Mills Peninsula Hospital two weeks after a triple bypass (CABG) at Stanford. It turned out I had a very serious internal bleed due to my post-surgical medications. Dr. Chimenti was competent, compassionate, and took the time to not only go through the issues I was dealing with, but also got on the phone and kept my sister updated on my progress (my sister is also a physician). I was so impressed (as was my sister) that I switched cardiologists from a very good doctor at Stanford to Dr. C. She's been treating me for my heart failure condition since, and I'm glad to have someone so on top of things working with me. She responds quickly to messages left on the MySutterHealth app and is extremely thorough. All the other doctors and nurses I deal with hold her in very high regard. HIGHLY recommended.
