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.

My mom saw Dr. Castillo for her depression. He is very respectful and is a great listener. He is really good at explaining difficult to understand information. You can tell he is sincere when he asks you how you are doing. His office staff are great, and got her insurance authorization very quickly! We've never waited more than 10 minutes in his office, which seems rare when it comes to doctor office wait times!
