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.

I never leave reviews, but feel I need to. Dr Shah may be an excellent pulmonologist, however, he was recommended to our family to help our child with a sleep disorder. We had a 90 minute consultation during which he asked my son some questions, promised him that if he started sleeping in his own room we would get him a kitten, and then told me that "everything would be fine." That was it. No recommendations, no strategies, no information. Nothing has changed 5 months later (which is no surprise since we got no information), and it took us a long time to explain to our son that he would not be getting a kitten. Very frustrating experience.

I have been bringing my son for the past 3.5 years till present to Dr. Shah. He is a great Pulmonologist. Always been on point in any health situation my son has had at anytime. Also, he knows how to communicate with the family and especially the child (great sense of humor). Dr. Shah is definitely one of the best!!!
