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.

Was annoyed that I dare question his authority and health care approach. He also aggressively pushed to remove support despite signs of improvement and demanded a time line to do so. I have a medical background with years of experience in medical practice and am very educated in signs of impending death. This patient was not at that point. Overall impression was not favorable and felt that he was more doom and gloom than a caring and compassionate health care provider.

Dr. Bandhakavi takes time to thoroughly explain things with his patients. Unlike other doctors and specialists I've seen over the years, he does not rush you out the door; he takes as much time as is needed to explain the situation, go over options and help to figure out the root cause of the health situation so you can make informed decisions on your healthcare.
