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.

I like Dr. Alkouz. I am sorry he is associated with the price/gouging Lovelace Heart Institute. In addition to charging for my follow up with my cardiologist, they charge a “facility fee” because, I guess, the Heart Hospital is across the street. This brings the amount charged to my insurance to around $500. UNM doesn’t charge like this even when your doc is actually IN the hospital.

I had a good experience with Dr. Alkouz. He was thorough in his explanations and took time with me. I wish there wasn't such a time lag between the initial visit and the next appointment.

Doesn't spend the time to explain his diagnostics. Doesn't put his comments in easily understood language. Doesn't want to spend the tome to answer questions. In a big hurray.

My husband saw Dr Alkouz and after almost a week long stay in the hospital without clear answers, Dr. Alkouz ordered an echo. After 3 weeks, we received a call the day before the scheduled echo telling us insurance didn't approve. What really happened was no one followed up with insurance during that time to find out what was going on and the echo got pushed back another week. He finally gets the echo and gets told the dr needs to tell him results. 8 days later we are still waiting, only excuses
