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.

The doctor is not just caring, attentive and knowledgeable but he is one of the few doctors nowadays who would promptly answer patient's calls outside of office hours

I met with Dr. K for the first time today via video. He was pleasant, knowledgeable and offered a few different options for treatment. He did not rush our appointment and ended the call with "do you have any questions for me?" Highly recommended!

I have had Dr Kocharian as my primary care physician for many years now. First off, he’s a super nice guy. He is never rushed during our appointments and always asks lots of questions and promotes good dialogue about my health. He shares lots of good advice and is very knowledgeable about health, diet, lifestyle, etc and how they interrelate.
