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.

Dr Hegde is a wonderful, extremely knowledgable & caring physician. She is very respectful & considerate. She always asks how I am doing & really, truly listens. She always does a physical exam. When I haven't had success with a treatment option she provides information about additional/other treatments explaining why she thinks it will improve my symptoms. I have always been seen within 10 minutes of arrival. I have been a patient of Dr Hegde for over 8 years & highly recommend her.
