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. Zhang literally saved my life. He operated successfully on my ruptured colon and was the attending surgeon in the emergency room. He is kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable.

I had a sleeve 10 years ago. I had really bad heartburn. Dr. Zhang was able to correct the heartburn by converting my sleeve to a bypass. This was done robotically. I was in the hospital for only 2 days. My heartburn is gone and as a bonus I have lost more weight.
