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 like him! Unfortunately, he is impossible to reach and while he is caring during your appointment, it doesn't translate to outside of the appointment. I haven't seen him in about a month and a half and I wouldn't be surprised if he never checks in with me again...so that's not great. I even texted him and asked him if there was an easier way for me to reach him and his response was that he refilled my meds. No mention of an easier way to get ahold of him. I understand he is busy, but it's really not ok. I'm thankful that I am doing okay and don't desperately need quick responses because it would be terrible if I did.

Unprofessional. Difficult to reach. He prefers communication via text message or email. Does NOT return calls, texts or emails quickly. As of this post, I have been waiting 8 days for a refill prescription and 3 business days for a response to call, texts and emails about this delay. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

We have seen many doctors trying to help us with a child with ADHD. Dr. Sood has been very helpful and was very direct with what we need to do to help our child prepare for life, and how to deal with today.

Absolutely the most unprofessional interaction I've ever had with a medical professional. Does not give the appearance of being concerned for his patients and a terrible communicator. Asked him to be removed from my child's case. NOT recommended or suggested in any way
