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.

Dr Gutierrez is the most caring doctor I have ever encountered. He listens thoughtfully, asks probing questions, shows more kindness to a patient than I've ever experienced. Wish he would come back to Texas...

Patients are just another insurance claim. Treat patients as human beings. You are arrogant and show no compassion. Who gives you the right to decide someone is too old (77) to not be worthy of medical treatment? He was our father, husband, grandfather. Congratulations for crushing another humans spirit to fight for their life. I hope the mighty dollar really brings you happiness.

Very poor bedside manner. Patients are peoples parents, grandparents, uncle, brothers Doctor Gutierrez. They aren't just another patient with an illness or a medical record. You need to go back to humanity courses. When you have a patient in your office...you speak to them and acknowledge them not just talk about their condition like they aren't present. SHAME ON YOU!!!
