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 first saw Dr I’m several years ago on referral from my rheumatologist. I have a history of allergic asthma and was a former smoker. I quit smoking in late 1988 and had been a distance runner since about 1990. Dr Im was amazingly thorough in evaluating the condition of my lungs and prescribed a treatment regimen that permitted me to continue to run for many years. He followed up routinely, each time providing me via US mail with a written reminder of the treatment plan. I relocated to another city and recently returned after several years. I re-established myself as a patient of Dr. Im (he remembered me and my condition) because of the excellent care he provided.

Initially, I was very satisfied with my original appointment and diagnosis. However, when I attempted to get an emergency appointment for a serious bout with my Asthma, April, 2019, I was informed the earliest I could get in was August, 2019.

Dr Feinstein recommend on 2 Dec 2015 called to get a Sleep Study done and I was told that the first available appointment was 18 Feb 2016. After almost 3 month, I did not hear from the doctor office. When I can call that they could find me in the system and the appointment was not for the Sleep study that Dr Feinstein ordered but just a consult. No one called me in 3 months to confirm the appointment nor to get additional Health and Insurance Information. What a waste!!!!!!!!
