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'm a male and had quad bypass done by Dr. Castro at 47 years old. After being told i had multiple vessel blockage, Dr. Castro came and answered any of my questions and gave me details of my bypass I needed. He is very professional and did very good job on my procedure. My recovery went well and would recommend him to others. Thank you for saving my life!
