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 experience was amazing. Dr. Tannous listened to me patiently and offered knowledgeable suggestions for my care and treatment. He was attentive to me as a person and my total well-being, not just for the reason I was here. I have never been treated so kindly by a physician anywhere.
