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.

I appreciate that I was given an appointment on the same day as my midday call to the clinic. My appointment was scheduled with Dr. de Castro. He asked several relative questions and listened to my replies. He was very easy to talk with, like all of the staff at DAK; I asked a lot of questions. I really appreciate that he was available and especially thankful that he told me that my condition would get worse before a newly, prescribed medicine would be effective.

Dr. Decastro is a true blessing. He was able to properly diagnose my skin condition after other doctors had failed. I finally received the correct treatment because of him. Dr. Decastro brought my multiple months of suffering to an end. God answered my prayers when I wanted to give up and I am forever thankful.
