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. Faruqi was very professional/knowledgeable, and very thorough in his diagnosis. I chose him as my gastro doctor based on other similar comments that I had read on reviews. The offIce was also very courteous and helpful.

As a first time patient I found the staff to be friendly, coordinated, and professional. Dr. Faruqi’s manner was sincere, respectful, and serene allowing me to present questions and the details I wanted him to know. He did not rush me, but instead gave his full attention with educated explanations.
