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.

He is dangerous. A doctor who shouldn't be treating adults. I was sad and not suicidal. He still had me locked up for 3 1/2 days (the minimum). Horrific experience. He needs his medical license removed.

Dr. Godwin is a God Send. I started meeting with Dr. Godwin in 2017. I had worked with numerous doctors in the past for depression and thoughts of suicide because Dr. Godwin really listened to me. Because of how he cared for me, I am in a good place now and recognize that my life does have value. I recommend him highly for anyone dealing with depression who wants a renewed and refreshed mind.

Dr. Godwin is a breath of fresh air in the maze of psychiatrists I have seen inpatient and outpatient for my bipolar, anxiety & ADHD. He listens with intent and is comforting, yet realistic with his recommendations and explanations for treatment. He asks questions relevant to my concerns and doesn't cut me off when I speak. His diagnostic & observational skills and are excellent, giving me the confidence I need on my recovery journey.
