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 think he means well, but in my opinion, he was a bit clueless when it came to the things I was dealing with. IMO, he did not seem to understand depression or eating disorders. His idea to cure my depression and eating disorder was, "exercise." However, I feel like it never hit him on the head that over-exercise was how I became anorexic in the first place. He would tell me things like, "If you want to lose weight, just exercise." Even though I was no where near overweight and just recovered from anorexia!

This man is very unprofessional. He was 15 minutes late for our very early appointment. He said he wasn't late (the receptionist told me he was not in yet) that he was sitting at his desk reviewing my chart. Starting off a session with a lie was very uncomfortable for me. He then complain about how little time he has to see patients. Not my problems. I am coming to him to help me with my problems. He didn't listen to me, wrote rx for meds and sent me on my way.
