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.

Always very prompt when I have questions and they are able to explain in the simplest terms. I have never had to wait for an appointment because they make room to see me when I need to be seen. Dr. Lemus always takes the time to answer all questions and takes the time to acknowledge us as individuals not just another patient.

Have 3 kids, large birth weight, through natural delivery and no complications. However, he persistently suggested I could plan the delivery date and have a c-section. I declined the first time and by the third time I asked him why this was still a topic in our conversation. He said many women do this. I found another obgyn. When setting up my account my social security number was loudly shared 3-4 times from one end of the hallway to the front desk.
