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.

Tried to return missed call before office closed at 4 pm. They turn phones over at 3:51 pm and don’t answer. “Yabbaa, dabba doooo! Down the dinosaur tail!”

Dr. Desai was arrogant, condescending, and rude. He did not take me seriously and basically said that my digestive issues were all in my head. I have now been diagnosed with Gastroparesis and had to have a pyloroplasty after suffering for half a decade. My gallbladder had to be removed as well because it was not functioning. Do not go to this doctor. He is the absolute worst.
