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 was THE BEST DOCTOR I had in USA ! I am so sorry that he not my doctor anymore because of my insurance..... I am very upset, that I can't have him as my doctor. He truly cares and he knows what he is doing, so many doctors can learn from him!
