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 Basal Cell removed from my face recently. Dr. Pena did a comprehensive evaluation during the surgery and after. The scar is only very slightly noticeable. The Basal Cell is completely removed. Excellent, professional medical care, Thank you Dr. Pena!

Dr. Pena requires a consultation visit for new patients which I believe is totally unnecessary and represents a rip-off of the insurance companies and the patients who pay a co-pay. If he is a good Mohs surgeon I think he would not have the time for or the need for this extra source of income. I went to another Doctor.

I had a 1 centimeter basal cell spot on top of my head and was told I needed a Moh's. Dr. Pena was too aggressive and went down too deep, stitched it too tightly. It got infected, when the nurse took out the stitches he told me only 1 stitch opened up, but the whole thing burst open. I went back 3xs because I needed to get it healed up and every time he lied to me. He was treating it incorrectly and I had to go to another dr. to get it healed properly. NIGHTMARE!
