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’v been going to Dr. Carinder for about nine years. He’s very nice and takes his time with his patients.. When he left the Slidell office I followed him to Covington as did a lot of his patients. I’d recommend him to anyone who needs a hematologist, he’s that good.

I have tried to make an appointment with Dr. Carinder for the past two weeks and the receptionist Rebecca is rude and unhelpful. Every time I call, she states someone will call me back. Very frustrating!!! Still no call or appointment.

Dr. Carinder has been my dr. since 2011 treating my breast cancer with mets to several areas of my bones. He constantly educates himself on the latest treatments so that he can pass his knowledge along to his patient's treatments. I travel about 30 miles to see him, which isn't always easy for us, but he's the best. As far as his "chair side manner" goes, he is funny & friendly if you are. Otherwise, he's very professional.
