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. Pimentel is just the best. She spends plenty enough time with me and explains everything in understandable language. She listens intently. She has a relaxed personality and a sense of humor that makes my appointments very enjoyable. Never a very long wait. Everyone I have spoken to that sees her professionally says the same thing. She is pure joy! A true asset to KU MED.

She is a highly competent cardiologist who takes a real interest in her patients and is totally up to date on the latest aspects of cardiology. I have recommended her to a number of individuals with cardiac problems., especially cardiac rhythm such as AF, LQT, etc. I have never received any negative feedback from people who have seen her. I would rank her in the top 5-10% of all physicians whom I have seen.
