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.

Overall I feel like I was given the absolute best treatment in a long time by a medical professional. Dr. Shen was very personalable, very understanding, and very knowledgeable about the pain I have been experiencing. I highly doubt that I would have received this type of treatment anywhere else. Dr Shen was compassionate and knew about the latest medical treatments that can potentially help me with my current medical issues. Thank you Dr Shen for being a grade above the rest of medical professionals I have dealt with in a very long time.
