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. Bhaskar performed a stress test on me. I informed him, and the nurse, that I had a respiratory condition. He didn't listen to me. While the nurse told me the treadmill would go "1 mile and hour like pushing a shopping cart", he started the treadmill much faster. Once the drug to dilate the arteries was in my body, I experienced extreme respiratory distress, after about 90 seconds, I said, "I feel terrible, stop this." When I sat down my oxygen saturation was 74, very dangerous. .
