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.

Poor care, arrogant
Longtime ulcerative colitis patient, ongoing flare ups. Changed to a new doctor, was given a different medication never discussed with me by Muggia, with great results and have been in remission for a number of years. I’m sorry so much time was lost by continuing to trust him as long as I did.

He literally saved my life. I was being treated (2 months) by my primary care for heartburn and with no improvement and was referred to Dr. Muggia. I requested an emergency appointment.and his staff was able to get me in the same day! Dr. Muggia instinctively knew that something was wrong and immediately sent me for heart tests. He contacted the hospital's cardiologists to ensure that my tests were reviewed immediately. It was discovered that I was having a heart attack! Thank you Dr. Muggia
