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. Perlman is the best doctor I've encountered. She is very knowledgeable in her field (neurology). I've never met a doctor that has exceptional bedside manner until I met Dr. Perlman. Dr. Perlman is the go-to doctor if you have a neurological disorder like Ataxia!
