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 had a high nt reading and my ob personally refered me to Dr Santolaya to have him look over the results. I ended up needing to have a CVS procedure performed by dr. Santolaya and even though it was a bit painful and scary, he kept me at ease and explained EVERYTHING throughout the entire procedure. I can honestly say I've never met a warmer, more compassionate doctor than him. He's even asked for me to give a call when the baby is born to make sure we're both doing well or to just stop by.
