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.

Dr. Samanta is a Miracle Worker. He is treating me for severe hemifacial spasm that I have suffered with for 13 years. I am now symptom free with beautiful results. I was treated by several other neurologists in the past and not one of them was able to achieve the symptom-free results the Dr Samanta has. I can't recommend him more highly.
