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.

The check in and triage were smooth. Even though Dr Rurangirwa has so many patients, you are never exposed to so many people. With this pandemic, I feel they take all the needed precautions to protect me, and my unborn baby.

I just want to say that I’m so happy to have Dr. Rurangirwa as my new doctor. He’s just an amazing doctor who listens and assures you everything will be alright. The front staff, the nurses and the lab nurse were very nice and helpful. I’m just so thankful with them especially me being a very nervous person. Definitely recommend to everyone to be their patient.
