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 brother is a current patient. He is in critical need to see dr. Kovacs for medication attention . We have called doctor Kovacs to plead in seeing him at least 6 times advising her/ assistants he is having hallucinations, paranoia and fears of injury and they refused to see him until next available opening of two weeks away. my brother is in desperate need of medical attention and they basically have said we are on our own until then. I would not recommend this doctor in the least. I see her previous reviews and I am puzzled. Even during his appointments she does not take the time to really listen & care. It is so unfortunate that the people who are in most need of her care are so easily dismissed
