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.

Dr. Habib is a real gem. You can tell that he really cares about his patients. He also answered at least one of my emails himself. I was really impressed. Pretty much the entire staff at the Liver Institute are great. Would highly recommend this doctor.

Does not return calls, insanely inappropriate new patient check-in questions including "do you own any firearms" (their own secretary agreed the questions were not appropriate and that no rational doctor should be asking them), does not listen to patient requests, do not recommend, avoid at all costs. There are plenty of better options around Tucson.
