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 family and I have been going to Dr. Nakkash for a few years now and he is such a pleasure. Very friendly and takes the time to ask about your health and your day in general. He looks out for you and makes sure to get you the glasses or contacts that fit you. Definitely recommend!!
