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.

Did not read history, or listen to symptoms described. Did not explain thought process or perspective on diagnostic tests or treatment options. Dismissive.

He knew I had blockage in my LAD. Put me on non-reversible blood thinners, started procedure to insert stent, then suddenly stopped, said nothing I can do - you need open heart surgery and walked out of the cath lab. Then he said that there was a malfunction and we couldn’t get a recording of the cath procedure. I personally think he knocked some plaque loose as I was much worse after the procedure. Worst doctor ever. Almost killed me.
