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.

Excellent cardiologist. Won't always tell you what you want to hear, but will tell it to you straight (no dilly dallying). So if you're searching for reassurance, look for it in his thoroughness and professionalism. Thank you, Dr. Castine. Would definitely recommend over other cardiologists, especially in the Ochsner system.
