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.

When a patient looks forward to seeing a doctor, simple deductive logic tells you that doctor is outstanding. Dr. Kakimoto doesn't just listen to her patients, she hears them. She examines her patient, explains her diagnosis in layman terms, treats and heals her patient and suggests a follow-up protocol. Then it's incumbent upon the patient to comply. The doctor heals, the patient complies and the bond of trust is born. I trust Dr. Kakimoto, so will you.
