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.

In 2016 I was diagnosed with Lung cancer. Dr. Baby arranged for a biopsy and it came back negative. Still, he thought it was a bad biopsy and encouraged another. Dr Babu did the next biopsy himself and there was indeed cancer in my left lung. I was then re-diagnosed with Stage 3 NSCLC. If Dr. Babu had not insisted on the second biopsy, I’d be dead now. Today, I am Cancer Free and I give the majority of the credit to Dr. Babu.

Worse doctor I’ve ever been to. I went to my appointment vomiting & very sick. Dr. Babu was cold and treated me as if I had made an appointment to get asprin & blew me off. I had blood clots in my lungs.
