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.

With the life of a loved one hanging in the balance, he played it by the book, refusing to allow the administration of a previously effective chemotherapy for fear it would compromise other infection-fighting medication. Family argued that we would take that chance rather than risk cancer returning. Family oncologist concurred with our decision but el-Shami would not budge or even confer with our oncologist . Patient's lung cancer returned aggressively and patient passed away a month later.
