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.

Very pleased w/services of Dr. Taranissi. Very displeased with office staff do not return calls even when urgency is expressed. My son was decompensating, sleeping all the time, angry, frustrated, doing poorly in school and having trouble sleeping. I left messages for return calls on office machine multiple times (Dr. Taranissi out of the country) with no return call. If you call the office, do not expect someone to answer, they are FAR too busy to answer the phone or return your call!
