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. Kang Zhang was a very efficient and thorough doctor. I used to see him when I was at UCSD since he was running a clinical trial for AMD. I followed up with him in Macau even though it is so far from San Diego because my eyes are precious to me and irreplaceable. He took care of me and I had a nice little vacation. I am grateful for him and his care.

Dr. Zhang was forthright and candid in our meeting and truly had a command of the complexities of my particular issues. He and his staff were timely, professional, and spent far more time with me than others I have been treated by or consulted with in the past.
