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.

Terrible bedside manner disrespects patients of African American race. Very argumentative and unprofessional. Her office staff is the same way, rude, hostile, and disrespectful to black people. There are several reviews regarding her hate and disdain bigotry practices. This brings a question of quality of care. She should be under investigation by the state of Maryland Board of Medical licensing and the A.M.A. I was a patient of hers one time, I will not return to that dinosaur quack ever again.

Purnima Sau was dismissive of concerns expressed and key medical history given during visit. Entire exam took less than 5 minutes. Support staff was condescending when giving explanation of treatment and treatment options.
