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.

The entire office was in chaos, maybe because of construction being done or for some other reason. Either way it wasn’t a warm atmosphere and I waited too long for my doctor

It was my first time seeing Dr. Chandra and I found my visit to be relaxing and very thorough. It was also great to see he had a sense of humor and I could tell he truly cares about his patients. I would definitely go back to see him again as needed. 5 stars all around.
