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. Ghaemmaghami is an amazing doctor and surgeon. During my office visit and prior to my surgery, he was very considerate, patient, and took the time needed to answer each and every one of my questions. He was also very reassuring during this difficult time in my life. I would highly, and gladly, recommend him to any one of my precious family members or friends should they ever need an amazing doctor and surgeon. Thank you Dr. Ghaemmaghami, for your outstanding care!
