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.

Finally found someone I can trust trust!
My primary care doctor recommended me to see Dr. Abou Assi to have a third opinion for my various GI issues. I went through two GI doctors previouely and none I or my primary care doctor were happy with. I finally found someone I could trust. Highly recommend him for anyone who looks for an excellent GI doctor.
