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.

Superb clinician and wonderful guy. He was my pulmonologist at UCSF in 2016 while I underwent a double lung & heart transplant. I cannot say enough about the level of care I received from him throughout that ordeal and the continued care I continue to receive. His concern, attention to every detail, astute clinical acumen, quick decision making during critical times, patience in explaining every situation, compassion and lovely bedside manner is unparalleled. I now travel from Chicago to see him, and wouldn’t have it any other way. I see more than my fair share of physicians on an ongoing basis and have been treated by multiple pulmonologists in different cities over the past 10 years. I can say with confidence that Dr. Steve Hays is the best there is. I strongly recommend seeking him out for care.
