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.

Both my wife and I needed a doctor in Santa Barbara. Dr Kupperman came highly recommended by a close friend. He is very impressive, knowledgable and helpful. He successfully treated my wife sinus issues that several other doctors were unable to treat. We now also highly recommend him.

Dr. Kupperman goes above and beyond! He treated me as a whole person, my entire health needs, not just my lung issues. I have been so touched by his caring and that of his entire staff. They are all incredibly well trained and help create feelings of immense safety & incredible confidence. Little things make such a difference! In today's medical world where it seems that everyone is over scheduled, I felt that I had all the time I needed, my health needs were more than met. THANK YOU!!
