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.

Best pediatritian in Pittsburgh! She is very thorough, thoughtful, considerate and their practice is inclusive and diverse. She takes time to get to know each family, cares deeply about the children in her care and this review is a long time coming. We see other pediatritians there too, like Dr. Sam and she is amazing too! My son was born in a snow storm with a heart condition and she arrived in the morning to check on him and returned the next day....in really awful weather, she calculates his med doses and always triple checks, researches, and confers with drs for my kids care. we love her. we have friends that started going and they love her too!
