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.

Drove from marin. Appointment name from Renee Coordinated visi. Probably the rudest doctor first saying she tried to cancel. I asked the front desk. No one knew about any cancelation. The ucsf program even asked me to confirm. I wish she had canceled because driving to Berkeley was inconvenient. I sat in parking lot for 5 hours to get my vision back leaving a challenging ec Xit but she was the most uniformed and patronizing visit I e ever had. Dismissed my vision problems after a bad car accident. I learned I have bad convergence and ocular motor issues. But getting any further solutions was useless. She was plain rude. I arrived home visual problems after her snd the intern Probably over did it. My eye had kaleidoscope images. Horrid! Did not care one ounce. So unprofessional I was disgusted! Her influence prevents me ftpm marin retina follow up. I still have flashes. Zero follow up.
