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 saw Dr. Sonpal in Texas and he was extremely attentive. Not sure why he was listed in Brooklyn when I wrote this. He was able to quickly diagnose my condition and get me care in the hospital. I have never felt better than after his visit.

After being recommended by several family members, it was a pleasure to meet Dr. Sonpal. He is a very kind, considerate and knowledgable doctor who is always willing to extend himself to provide the best support needed. His professionalism as well as personable demeanor was much appreciated when it came to discussing any questions or concerns well in advance. This truly made me feel at ease before my procedure. I was satisfied with my whole experience and would highly recommend him.

I saw Dr Sonpal in Women’s health magazine and looked him up. He’s incredibly sweet, funny and called me a week later to see how I was doing. I don’t understand why he works in two of the most ugly and downtrodden hospitals in NY. Perhaps he wants to really help.

Finding a doctor in Manhattan can be overwhelming but thankfully I was recommended to Dr. Sonpal. Obviously he’s knowledgeable but more importantly he has a genuine desire to help people. Couldn’t have had a better experience.
