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.

My son was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, a large tumor in his upper chest wall. We are from NY and Dr Shamburger came highly recommended from our oncologist at Albany Med. Dr Shamburger more than thoroughly laid out exactly what would happen during the surgery. The operation lasted 11 hours. The staff was great and gave hourly updates. After the surgery Dr Shamburger spent a long time explaining how the surgery went. The next morning he was in at 6am checking in. He did an amazing job!
