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.

We were not happy with him at all. This doctor goes through constant staff turn overs. Making appointments are extremely hard. His staff are not experienced. Basically, if you want to trash your money go to cedars and see this doctor.

He is knowledgeable and talks to you about your health condition. Always calls the next day with lab results. He actually makes the call. Easy to talk to.
