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.

I went to Dr. Ahmad as he accepted my insurance. His office was freezing. When I spoke with Dr. Ahmad I had difficulty understanding him. English is not his native language & I doubted his ability to understand me. I had a stress test & cardio version. Next is an angiogram. My pre-op interview revealed that I was still taking blood thinners & the test had to be rescheduled. Nobody at his office told me to stop! Thanks to the nurse in pre-op I didn't bleed out. I am looking for another MD!

I wish they had a negative star. Worse experience in a doctor's office. I was on time for my appointment. After about an hour they took me for my vitals. Then started to put me back in the waiting room. I asked how much longer and at first they wouldn't say until i told them i was on my lunch break. Then they said at least 1 hour. The receptionist told me this is what happens when you see a specialist. Really?? Then she said they don't recommend doing this on a lunch break. Really?
