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. Alvaranga is tops in her field. I research doctors because I have had bad experiences in the past. Not only does Dr. Alvaranga have great credentials but she is caring as well. She explains everything completely and discusses alternative treatments.

I received my new kidney 6 years ago. Dr. Alveranga was one of several doctors I saw pre-and post surgery. I will be forever grateful to her. During pre-surgery meeting she explained to me what to expect everyday post transplant. She was spot on with her description. I was prepared, knew what to expect, and was relaxed because of information she provided. Thank you.
