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 have had Acupuncture many times. Wanting to find someone In-Network, I went to Hongyan Li at Alternative Medical Center. I confirmed on the phone that it would be $35. Dr. Li came took my history and I told her of my pain. The session began and after inserting the needles and turning on the heat light, she turned off the lights in the room and left me alone. Nothing out of the ordinary from what I have experienced. Moments later, the door abruptly opens and Dr. Li told me that my insurance will only pay a few dollars for the light, and no wonder my last Acupuncturist did not take my insurance and that I would have to pay more $. I was in shock...didn't know what to think. So I got dressed and went out. The man at the desk handed me a chart of their charges and said I needed to pay $70. She is contracted with Blue Shield and she should have told me this BEFORE treating me.
