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.

In this special field, Dr.Kohake is very considerate of this personal issue, it's not total and exact because it's an unknown field but my doctor's does very well indeed.

I awarded Dr. Kohake with 3 stars for the simple reason I’ve not met her yet. A nurse, Jennifer?, and a nurse practitioner, Michelle? were conducting some studies and assessments through questions and answers to evaluate my memory and its basic functions. Both nurses were extremely efficient and professional. Thank you.

Dr. Kohake was very personable (this was my first visit with her) and took the time to read through all of my comments/concerns I'd put into the patient information forms they'd sent out. Lots of places will expect you to fill out pages of information, then not even bother to look at it. I felt she'd read through and took into consideration everything that I had noted.
