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 had Dr Velho as my primary pulmonologist but I feel I first met her as registered nurse sent to help staff learn how to do her most common invasive surgery which I’d bronchoscope and including those included those with biopsy when hospital transferred to another area of hospital then where I was currently worked. Intuitively trusted her immediately based on this intuition and think within couple years I became her private patient after referral from another physician who had received results of pulmonary function test that she had actually read. I remain 100% a fan based on her treatment of my disease
