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 waited about one hour and twenty minutes to see the doctor. It was absurd. His office is not well organized. I like him as a person and believe he is an intelligent physician but the lack of attention and organization made the visit very short of being satisfactory.

Dr Kotzker is just what I was looking for in a nephrologist and I am so happy he was referred to me. He is very caring, knowledgeable and kind. For me, that’s very important. I’ve had my share of health issues and need someone who explains everything. Nothing worst than a doctor who rushes you out of the office. Dr Kotzker takes the time needed. His office staff is always very nice. I highly recommend him!
