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.

Not very professional in terms of how the office is run and he's very superficial. Wants to just get you in and out quickly. Good if you know what Rx you need and don't want to be bothered but would avoid for any real care.

My experience with Dr. Kondev was horrible. He appeared to be annoyed by the fact that I arrived for my appointment on time and had to take his stocking feet off of the “front desk”. Then, he was obsessed with the medications I was taking and told me there was nothing he could do for me. Definitely a strange, narcissistic dude.

The 1 star review from New York hit the nail on the head. I believe the other reviews were written by his friends or himself. (Dr.) Kondev is EXTREMELY unprofessional. My first visit with him, I poured out my feelings, and he told me "sometimes the best thing to do is stuff it down." Who says that?! Especially a doctor!? I haven't seen him for more than 10 mins, and he bills my insurance for 30 minutes. My last visit, he had someone else there already. He finished us both in 10 minutes. Money...

I find that Dr. Kondev really takes the time to listen to you. He is always very honest and discusses options with you. I find the comment down below with 1 star to be very inaccurate!! Then again, you have to realize this is a service being provided and if people don't get the medication they originally came to the doc in hopes of getting they'll leave rude/inaccurate reviews. The doc knows the proper way to diagnose and he takes the time to do it right. He is clearly very good at what he does!

A doctor that cares only for money not patients if you are on any controlled substances don't go to him and if he tries to give you controlled substances i.e. Amphetamenes, Benzodiazapines and Suboxone 3 of his favorites. He will put you on these meds and let you become physically dependent on them and he will cut them off at his or the DEA discretion. He just doesn't care about his patients he cares about his $. Stay away at all costs. I have never been in his office with him fore more than5min
