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. Fonseca has been a blessing to our family by providing rapid testing and facilitating our journey through the treatment of my husband's liver cancer. Not only thorough, fast and professional, this man is kind, generous with his time and empathetic to the worry and concerns of cancer patients and their families. He also responds quickly to any questions. God bless this man. My family and I highly recommend this doctor.

Dr Fonseca accepted me into his BiTE trial for MM. After 6 yrs - 2 stem cell transplants and 3 different triplets of drug regimens- I am showing ZERO sign of my disease. He is brilliant, kind and empathetic to all of his patients needs! Feeling blessed to be part of his team through this journey!
