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.

Unprofessional in attitude. He shows no interest or concern. She talks as if a mother's worry is madness. Her diagnosis is "conformism" ... No mother is satisfied with anything that her baby suffers. The employee who attends the Front Desk has a very bad character and is not very pleasant to attend to the public. I do not recommend this query at all.

Paid $307 dollars for Dr. Gonzalez to see my kid for 5 minutes, and his office staff when ahead and double bill also the insurance company. When the insurance denied the claim, they kept sending me invoices trying to collect an additional $30 dollars. I called more than 5 times this office trying to get someone from billing to review this info, even my insurance called them and no one ever replied nor returned the calls. Very disappointing to know they are just trying to scam insurances and people.
