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.

My family and I met with Dr. Melisko for a second opinion on my breast cancer diagnosis. She was very friendly and thorough with her explanations. She was well versed and knowledgeable on the subject. She was positive and much more hopeful than my current oncologist. She seemed to be more aggressive in her treatment recommendation giving my situation the benefit of the doubt. I would highly reccommend her and I am happy that we had the opportunity to meet with her.

Dr. Melisko demonstrates great empathy when listening to me. She shares the latest information and statistical outcomes concerning my cancer. I trust her input and the treatment plan she recommended for me. I worked at UCSF for 25 years and I know the reason she tends to run 15-30 min. late are due to the facts, 1) Dr. Melisko spends extra time with each patient and 2) UCSF needs to hire additional oncologists. Dr. Melisko is my first choice for breast cancer information and treatment.
