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 doctor. I had DBS in 2018 for tremors. Dr. Nazzaro is blunt and a straight-shooter. I've recommended Nazzaro and his team to many people.

This is an outstanding doctor. He takes time to answer questions. He’s blunt and doesn’t sugarcoat. He has better bedside manner than most neurosurgeons for what that’s worth. I had DBS surgery and I would recommend him to anyone. KU is lucky to have him.
