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.

Excellent! I’ve been seeing him for about three months for treatment and getting to the root of my issues. He’s very knowledgeable and is eager to look further into things. I can’t say that about many doctors!

I was under the care of Dr Zarbalian for 3 years for treatment of my autoimmune disorder. Dr Z as his patients call him is really smart and very well trained. I am a retired physician- he would often reprint medical articles for me to help me understand my disease and treatment goals. The best part of Dr Z though is his kindness. He is caring and empathetic. He never rushes you if you need more time during your visit. Dr Z is interested in the whole patient and works hard to make sure you understand your disease process. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring, competent physician.

I don't know why nobody's reviewed this guy yet. He --*listens* to and considers what you're saying --doesn't present his initial ideas/hypotheses as irrefutable facts --references/incorporates new research, citing various studies performed by various experts in the field, instinctively giving them credit for the findings rather than attempting to claim it for himself --He's calm/subdued, & not at all condescending. Note:Half the office staff is rude. Don't let it get to ya. He didn't hire 'em.
