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.

There was miscommunication between Sachs and the Nurses who scheduled the appointment today for my girlfriend. After the nurse put the IV in, and a 2 hour wait, Sachs cancelled the procedure saying it wouldn't do any good medically. He had NO empathy for my girlfriend and no apologies for wasting our time. He said to my girlfriend,"I've known you for a year so I don't have to listen." I used to see him but will not anymore and I do NOT recommend this doctor in the future.
