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.

Very good and caring nephrologist!
Dr. Saxena is very easy to talk to and he explains difficult concepts so we can understand. He cares about his patients. He is very smart. He assimilates and processes new information quickly. We are so fortunate to have him as my husband’s new nephrologist.
