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.

I had a sleep lab done, and it didn't check any of the three boxes Dr. Lam was looking for - not narcoleptic, not sleep apnea, not insomnia. So I asked what was the next step? He just said he couldn't help me. Didn't have any alternative ideas, or other people to send me to. Eventually he sent me to a PCP for blood tests after I begged him to come up with a plan.
