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’s very condescending. Unprofessional, lack of bedside manner has no empathy for his patients. Would not recommend him to anyone. In fact run find a different doctor immediately.

Dr Rajkumar was very professional, explained my condition and treatment. I never felt rushed. During my treatment that required many office visits the nurses were professional, friendly and respectful.

Earlier I gave him an extremely positive review which I am now rescinding. He did not cure my son's Lyme disease and DID NOT follow up on him as he originally indicated he would. Another Dr. discovered that my son still had Lyme disease. Due to my lack of faith in him I am now taking my son to a MD over 50 miles from home. Do not trust this man to follow through with your case.
