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.

Similar experiences as the others who’ve negatively reviewed her here. Dr. Darak is rude and arrogant, and her visits and procedures are unprofessional and rushed. When I questioned her about a test and the odd situation which occurred during the visit, (her assistant actually saying, ‘oops I just dropped some on the floor’,) she became almost belligerent, and the rudeness from her simply never ended from there on. While in the process of looking at other doctors in order to leave her practice she sent me a letter telling me she would no longer treat me. The timing of her letter was almost comical. She picked the wrong profession and IMHO skipped Bedside Manner 101 class.

***STAY AWAY*** Dr. Leah Derek should have her license revoked! Not only is she rude but also beyond arrogant! After giving birth to my daughter and being treated for preeclampsia she came into my recovery room and tried belittled me. She is far from compassionate and the worst doctor that I have ever seen.

Caring and thoughtful. I was very nervous but Dr. Darak put me at ease, listened to my concerns and made sure I understood what I needed to do. I had not been to an OB/GYN for over 15 years but I will be more vigilant about my check ups and returning to Dr. Darak for them.
