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.

Unfortunately, Dr. Kolyvas is not served well by his nurse Angie. I used to think she was having a bad day. I am now convinced that she is always rude and disrespectful to her patients. In the several years I had to endure her, I have received nothing but contempt for calling. She has also misread information when adjusting my mother's medications until I corrected her. My sister also has experienced Angie's surliness. Angie refuses to listen to what is needed and fails to follow up. We called, as directed by Dr. Kolyvas, when my mother was experiencing swelling. We called several times. We were told Angie received the messages. She called back over two weeks later. (My mother had to be hospitalized which might have been prevented had Angie responded.) I would, sadly, never go to Dr. Kolyvas solely because of Angie's extremely poor & unprofessional behavior. Laura, his prior nurse, was exceptional & a complete contrast to Angie. Nurses are important. All the more reason to avoid Angie.
