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 been a patient since 2013 and trust Dr. Alsina and her team. She treats patients with respect, takes the time to answer questions and thoroughly explain your condition and prognosis. I am blessed to have been referred to her.

Great Specialist in Multiple Myeloma
Dr. Alsina has been my doctor for 8 years. She is extremely knowledgeable in multiple myeloma and is probably the top doctor that specializes in treatments for this disease. She is a caring and understanding person.

Really deserves zero stars, but they don't let you give a zero on this rating system. Uncaring and borderline competent- negligent is too kind of a word for the type of care she provides.
