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 supposed to return to my regular nephrologist 3 months after my October 2020 transplant. But I determined that I was getting considerably better care and being given more information on how to best take care of myself from Dr. Nandigam. The care is better and and my out-of-pocket cost for appointments has been cut in half. I hope my brother's nephrologist is this good.
