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.

He is a great doctor, and very caring. A quality not often seen with many healthcare providers. My son has been seeing him for a long time, and we could not imagine being with another provider.

Very thorough and thoughtful. Treated us with care and respect, never hurried. Able to make appointments pretty easily. Took time to talk to us on weekends and did not charge us (unlike Dr Robbie Wright who charged me $175 for a 10-minute call and still did not help)

Dr. Chai is a very resourceful and considerate doctor. He expresses much concern for his patients overall well being and exercises great professionalism. He is very caring and personable, overall, my child feels very comfortable with him. He is respectable at all times and very open and willing to discuss any concerns or just general questions.
