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.

A total waste of time and money. They treat a sick child like a corpse to be examined. We were denied any requested testing, and then got referred to the wrong department, another day of work and school missed, plus extra expenses, for absolutely nothing.

Dr. Balboni was an essential part of my daughter's recovery in the hospital. She spent a lot of time answering all of our questions and was very easy to understand. She is extremely intelligent and respected by my family. Most importantly, she cares about the well-being of my daughter. I am glad that she is my daughter's Rheumatologist. I feel safe knowing she is the one to take care of her.

Dr. Balboni has been incredible through my daughter’s recent diagnosis. She is so gentle and kind and extremely thorough. Our urgent referral was taken seriously and we were seen within a week. When my child had new symptoms, she offered to squeezed us in to be seen on short notice. Dr Balboni works to create a treatment plan considerate of the patient and families’ needs. She responds promptly to emails and is an invaluable part of my child’s care team after her diagnosis. We are very grateful.
