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. Chen, is a wonderful doctor. He is very patient and always listens. He knows your history and is always up to date on what you need. I’ve had cancer for 17 years. My last doctor retired. I am so lucky to have found Dr. Chen. I totally trust him and know I’m in good hands.

Dr. Chen is a consummate professional, kind, caring and patient. He's my Mom's oncologist and explains things so she and my Dad can understand. He listens to HER wishes, and my questions, (also medical professional), and is the best. Thank you, Dr. Chen.
