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. Vega, along with his office staff, made my first office visit in an extremely timely manner. Surgery was scheduled very quickly. They did all the legwork with me just showing up at hospital. Dr. Vega explained every aspect of the surgery and did not speak over my head. Very patient with the many questions I had and was more than happy to explain things again, when asked. Very scary time in my life but I knew I was in the best of hands
