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.

He has been great! I had a botched eye surgery from another surgeon and Dr. Malton has been patient, kind and caring. He has done a great job with my inserting my eye plugs as well. His staff is just as nice and will work to get me in on the same day if needed.

Dr Malton is an extrodinary doctor! He is a neuro-ophthalmologist, of which there are fewer than 250 trained in both specialties in the country. I have a previously diagnosed, rare neurological condition that was missed by 3 NYC neurologists. I started seeing a shadow trail when swinging my arms and he went to his office for a book to show me a picture of my description. Looking at my eyes he asked if I knew I had brainstem damage, which I did know. He was only 2 of 8 docs to catch that. AAA+++
