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.

I have been seeing Dr. Pong since my first heart attack, almost 12 years ago. I never realized someone could literally have your life in their hands and somehow they let you know it will all be ok. Dr. Pong has been with me through this journey, always there, always willing to listen, always winning my trust and valuing the love he must have to be such a incredible doctor. Thank you Dr. Pong, G. Welsh.

I think the world of Dr. Pong. He is a kind and caring individual. He is also a great Cardiologist. I hate the thought that Dr. Pong will probably retire in the near future.
