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.

My children have seen Dr. Kristal several times. He is the best dermatologist I have seen. He explains all, listens, answers questions, takes time with the children and you never feel rushed. He is friendly and looks at you when he speaks. I have seen other dermatologists, personally, that make you feel rushed and only want to answer some of your questions. I have never had that experience with Dr. Kristal. I highly recommend him.
