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.

This physician dismisses the scientific method in lieu of emergency room-esque heuristic models that risk endangering patients, such as myself. His methods and conclusions are not backed by research and use cases, as he attempted to mystify and derail my deductions as I asked simple questions about normal blood pressure readings, which he acted ignorant to. He ended up hanging up on me during our telehealth visit.

Arrogant, dismissive, and entirely unhelpful
I definitely suggest finding a cardiologist who cares about his patients -- this one does not. Despite experiencing very real heart abnormalities (confirmed by tests he ordered), he was dismissive of my concerns and symptoms and entirely unhelpful in figuring out an effective way to manage my symptoms, identify the root cause, and get some relief. He couldn't get out of the appointment fast enough, passing the buck on my (yes, admittedly complex) issues to other specialists. My primary care provider was more helpful, and certainly more compassionate.
