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 am a long time patient of Dr. Louis Korman- who visits him only for necessary maintenance like colonoscopy. That in itself says his care heals.His bedside attitude is superior. He is my favorite GI doctor.

Dr. Korman is a very careful diagnostician with good treatment suggestions (on the conservative side, which I've interpreted to be in my self interest). He also is very empathetic. Great combination in a Doctor.
