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.

Fabulous...simply fabulous. The only reason I am not seeing Dr. Raissi now is my corporate medical insurance was changed to Kaiser. I will be back once I am on Medicare in one year. Thank you for great care Dr. Raissi!!!
