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.

While in hospital at Karmanos Cancer Hospital I was seen by Dr. Afonso for an unrelated issue. He helped find a serious issue with my pericardial sac that another cardiologist down played. He took time to verify and consult with other specialist to devise a treatment plan allowing for surgery only as last resort. As with any new course of medications there comes side effects. He provided his personal cell number to text with problems; evenings and weekends. His response was less than a 1/2 hr. I have not reached the end of my treatment, but as for now I could not be happier with the care I am receiving.
