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. Nguyen and the staff at the Menlo GI Clinic made the process of getting a 10 year colonoscopy, if not pleasant, then at las as comfortable as possible. Dr. Nguyen has a very soothing, friendly manner to him. He lays out your options, makes a recommendation, but let’s you decide the best course of action. I was extremely comfortable with his professionalism and highly recommend him.
