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 Shah truly cares....he's got a good bedside manner. Sometimes takes a little to understand that but once you do you will not go anywhere else. Hard to find a Dr who cares. Now I need to listen too all of his recommendations to get even better ?? I'm glad I found him and followed him since then...
