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. Nisar Zaidi performed my bilateral laproscopic inguinal hernia repair this week. He was very kind, answered my questions, came back when I had more questions, and checked up on me after I awoke in recovery and again before I was discharged. I am now 3 days post-surgery and am taking minimal medication. I feel better than I'd expected and look forward to recovering fully and having a better quality of life. The entire care staff there was wonderful, personable, and attentive. I'm just sorry I don't remember all of their names. Thank you all for the phenomenal job you did and continue to do daily.
