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.

Top notch psychiatrist
Have never seen a specialist so dedicated to his field. Extremely knowledgeable clinically, as well as treating with psychotropic medications. Very respectful of all patients, even when they may be experiencing psychosis. I would take any negative reviews on here as a grudge or misunderstanding, because if you are his patient and something is wrong and you have a concern, he will literally take time out to call back the same day. If that is not conscientiousness, I don't know what is. Would highly recommend without a doubt, especially as the practice is taking new patients.

Saw me when I was inpatient. Brought 3 students into my room who whispered and wrote notes about me to each other. "Diagnosed" me with conversion disorder. I have a rare metabolic disorder that causes paralysis and weakness. The cure is potassium. If I'd believed him I'd still be having paralytic episodes. I'm not. None since I started treatment. Also he said he would return with a medication. He never did. Shame on you, Dr de Ruijter. I gave you a chance to apologize to me too, but you didn't bother. Arrogant and ignorant. The worst combination.

Dr. DeRuijter is my husband's doctor. We have seen two other psychiatrists in the past, and there is no comparison. He is kind, understanding and listens! I have called the office several times, and he always returns the call that day. I cannot ask for better.
