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.

He is the only doctor near me that specializesin my disorder and he is IMPOSSIBLE to contact. I saw him at CHOC yearly for a prescription and now he no longer works there but never let his patients know and now nobody at CHOC can contact him for me and when I call his Irvine office they say they cant help me because I am not a patient there.

He is a terrible human being and likes to throw his weight around pretending to be important.
