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 G understands my anxiety situation. Like all docs these days he is very frugal when writing anxiety meds. Time will tell whether or not we can develop a good client/patient relationship. He's very likable.

My adult son has a serious mental illness. He sees Dr. R. Gihwala regularly, and we are very satisfied with medical care he provides. He is very attentive to his patients and to my son in particular. He listens to us, always gives wise recommendations. Apart from mental illness he discovered that my son has another serious disease which needed immediate treatment. We are very grateful for that. Seeing Dr. Gihwala in his office always has a calming effect on both my son and myself. Good doctor!
