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 Harrykissoon is one of the best doctors I've ever used. He always takes his time and thoroughly explains things and answers every question in simple English that I can understand. Not only would I refer family and friends to him - I have.

If you think he is going to show concern for you, you are wrong. He bills the insurance for 30 minutes and spend maybe 5 minutes with you. I should of never went I read a review about how horrible and uncaring he was, but I thought I would give him the benefit of the doubt. Don't waste your money or time, go somewhere will you will be treated like a patient and get the care you need. He is a pitiful example of a doctor. He treats his patients like they are on an practice on an assembly line
