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.

Absolutely love Dr. Shanker, He's easy to talk , he listens to my kids problems , had great insight. He doesn't rush through our appointments, he takes his time too listen to me and my kids. He has called me back directly instead the secretary. I can usually get Emergency appts when I needed them. We unfortunately moved and no longer can see him, but I would recommend him to anyone. He is going to be a hard Doctor to replace. Jennifer B
