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.

He may be a good doctor but you can't make an appointment to see him. His staff is instructed not to make appointments more than 3 months out and he's always booked up for three months. Yet he's still taking new patients. Insurance companies refuse to help.

I'm very disappointed with his lack of follow-up. He was supposed to order a test after my appointment and it's still not scheduled three months later. When you call his office and remind them, nothing happens. And the staff has instructions not to messages for him. It's very frustrating. Unfortunately his office, Pulmonary Associates of Southern Arizona, are the only sleep specialists covered by my insurance. I'm planning to change insurance companies as soon as I can.
