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 was visiting from out of state and needed a transfusion to manage my Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). I was referred to Dr Galatin at Stanford. Even with orders from my doctor, Galatin initially refused treatment and lectured me on why my treatment modality was incorrect. He hadn't reviewed my records, doesn't specialize in MDS (a rare disease) and hasn't published any research on it. His style was the antithesis of patient-centered care. I definitely won't use Stanford Hospital again.
