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. Tamma is an exceptional physician and person
I have been a patient of Dr. Tamma's for approximately 2 years but already knew him through my sister, as he was her physician. Dr. Tamma goes above and beyond for his patients. His bedside manner is exceptional. He is well-respected by colleagues and has a brilliant mind. Both my sister and I have been very satisfied with our care and feel grateful to have such a provider. We need more doctors like Dr. Tamma.
