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.

While Dr. Dymms was kind and warm to my two children, we have been double billed for our Well Child, New Patient visit leaving me with a bill of over $1000 - and this is with premium insurance coverage through the Motion Picture Industry! This error has not been corrected by her office, instead I was told by her office manager that they get many complaints about this practice, but that the billing department is following Dr Symm's leadership on this practice. With that knowledge, I emailed Dr Symms directly requesting that she step in to correct the issue and she told me that I was making her "feel awkward" because her role is as a clinician. As a new patient to this office, having come in for something as standard as a New Patient Well Child visit, I AM LEFT FEELING AWKWARD, and am frankly fuming. I have had to escalate this issue with both UCLA and my Insurance company and it has become an enormously time consuming process. I'd give this office zero stars if possible.

Dr. Symms is a knowledgeable, patient and warm Pediatrician. I trust her medical care and advice completely for my two kids. I tried out a few other docs before meeting her and no one compares. She's the best!
