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 Nilkantan is the most intuitive Dr. I have ever had. Because of her consistency and compassion she saved my life two times and I owe her my life. She is leaving and I will miss her very much. I hope that I will be able to find someone even close to her expertise. She has been my doctor for 22 years.
