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.

Dr. Ghanem has been my grandmother's oncologist since she was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in November 2015. He is more than a doctor, but a friend to my grandmother and our family. He has been a blessing to have. He takes time to explain things to us and make sure my Grandmother understands everything. In a career that can have many disappointments, he continues to care and have the biggest heart for his patients. We love Dr. Ghanem.
