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 Skaria has been incredible with treating my mom's lung issues. He is extremely knowledgeable and very clearly explains both best and worst case scenarios. Our family is grateful for such an amazing pulmonologist.

Dr. Skaria is one of the most knowledgeable, trustworthy and compassionate doctors I have ever known. He provides excellent care, let alone time and attention many doctors don't often provide in order to help patients and family clearly understand their condition and ask questions.

Dr. Skaria is a competent and trustworthy physician. I never have to worry if I'm receiving appropriate care because he takes the time to answer my questions, explains the plan of care, and always listens to my concerns. I would not only recommend Dr. Skaria to any of my friends or family, but I would insist they receive care in his practice.
