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.

snrecnoc lDr. Sivaraju made 2 visits to my homebound father at times when I could not be present. First, he came 1.5 hrs. earlier than the scheduled time. The second was scheduled for a time that I was not available, despite my expressed request for that not to happen. I was advised my father's caregiver that the doctor replaced a soiled bandage after examining bedsores. When I called to express concerns about the visits, I requested a cb from the doctor. He left 2 VM both very curt.
