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.

The best pediatrician in Sarasota. I am so happy to have found Dr Tavarez for my son. I come from a pediatrics family and all of my relatives are in other parts of FL, and Dr. Tavarez truly stands out. My own family were happy with my choice and agree with his recommendations and treatments.

We are so happy to have Dr T here in Lakewood Ranch. After our lifetime pediatrician Dr R. Shamsey retired, we saw 2-3 providers in the same office but nobody like Dr Tavarez. He is caring, smart, very thorough and accurate. Great to have him here.
