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.

I work in the medical field and so I have seen so many doctors' bedside manner and whether they really care about their patients. Dr. Takahashi is absolutely the best doctor I have ever met. She sees my toddler's eczema. She is sweet and care about my baby. She also gives me answers and there is no uncertainty. She is the best. My son is lucky to find her. FYI, she is the forth dermatologists? I found and I am sticking with her. I followed her from Pasadena to La Canada.
