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. Ahdab has missed several telehealth appointments. His follow-up with critical care issues and overall communication with is patients and or their caretakers is horrendous. He is unprofessional in his practice and I would not recommend him to anyone. Dr. Adhab prefers to see patients in the hospital and is very lax in his clinical work.

Dr. Ahdab is a very caring and a patient doctor. Last year I went to Dr. Ahdab with a very serious heart condition and now one year later I am back to normal. He is very thorough and takes whatever time is needed for each patient. He will not let you leave his office until you completely understand your prognosis and treatment.
