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 have now seen Dr. Valcarcel twice and have the greatest confidence in her. She takes the time to explain things and answer any questions so I understand my course of care. Since I have to have a nephrologist, I'm very glad to have her as my doctor! I would never hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing a nephrologist.

Dr. Valcarcel and her immediate staff are great to work with. No issues with her or her staff. (My issues do not pertain to Dr. Valcarcel or her staff and have to do with the patient portal and the call center.)
