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.

Great pulmonologist, very caring, thoughtful and thorough. He has been a tremendous help to my elderly dad, over the last 10 plus years, with his COPD . He always takes the time to make sure my dad and I both understand dad's current condition, health plan with meds and what to do during off hours in case of flare ups. I would highly recommend him to family and friends.
