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.

Dr. Soori is the most thorough MD that I have ever visited. On my initial visit he spent 1 1/2 hours reviewing my complete medical history. His taking the time to review all aspects of my rectal cancer instilled complete confidence in his advise and guidance.

Inconsiderate. No communication to family about status especially husbands and wives....not worth his time. Never answers a question with an intelligent response. Actually, never answers a question period. Obviously gives the impression that patients are worth only a moment of his precious time. Not a chance would I recommend him for any reason.

He seems very smart but he is so busy and out of town so much can never get any help. The office drops the ball on procedures that need to be done! I feel he could care less and his staff does not call back when calling for help! This is a very difficult time and getting proper medicines and procedures is life threatening. It is tough to fight every step of the way when you do not feel well! It is really too bad he is a lot of talk but no follow thru!
