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’ve been known to fire Doctors in the past for not receiving the care I felt I deserve or not valuing my time as if it was their own to waste, but mostly because I am not a billing plan for their retirement. Dr. Fonseca is one of the few Doctors I can say that he truly CARES takes the time to explain any concerns you may have but most importantly he LISTENS! His staff is equally professional, they are the best they are truly a reflection of Doctor Fonseca. Thanks for the second lease on life!!
