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.

He almost killed me in the hospital. He had no idea what he was doing, and didn't know how to control his staff. He is very rude and arrogant.

Dr. Hernandez was able to diagnose my 11 month old son with a congenital defect that went unnoticed by 2 other ped specialists. It was so nice to finally get some answers and not feel like a crazy mom! He spent a reasonble amount of time thoroughly explaining everything. Very down to earth and easy to talk with. Highly recommend.
