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 liked Dr. Chen. She is a doctor I felt I could trust from the moment I met her. She spent time with me and explained the results of my blood tests and what steps I may have to take in the future.

Dr. May Chen has very deep and vast knowledge in the cancer area. Asides from being an excellent physician, she is also a very caring and compassionate doctor.

I cannot begin to extol the praises I have for Dr. Chen. She is hands down the best doctor I have ever met in every measurement category - from credentials to bedside manner. When evaluating physicians, my family and I all unanimous agreed that we could stop looking when we met Dr. Chen. I have the utmost regard for her and would refer her to anyone needing care.
