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.

Saw my child in August of 2019, reviewed MRI and decided to go against recommendations to do a cerebral angiogram. He said everything looked great, to ignore the recommendations. Well, it ended up being that she got worse, and a different doctor did the angiogram. Which showed extensive clots diffuse through the brain. This man is a killer. Stay away from this crook.

I have a very unfortunate history with Dr. Ragheb. I don't have enough room to explain. Suffice it to say, he operated on my tethered cord, and now I have a nerve disease. He had to operate twice because he made a mistake during first surgery. I now have a debilitating case of arachnoiditis thanks to his poor judgment call. Thanks Dr. Ragheb.
