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 was under Dr. Guzman's care for 2 years until I relocated to another city. Dr. Guzman is the best psychiatrist in the world. He always made me feel calm and at peace after every visit. He was always encouraging, compassionate, and professional. My life became so much better since I was under Dr. Guzman's care. I can't say enough about how great Dr. Guzman is! I highly recommend Dr. Guzman if you are seeking a psychiatrist.

I have been working with Dr. Guzman for 9 years. He has been extremely professional and compassionate. He takes time to listen to everything I have to talk about. He also remembers small details that are shared with him about my life. A good example of this is when I did not get along with my son, he remembered all of the details about our problem. I have seen him for the past 9 years and he has been compassionate each time. He is very professional and very compassionate. I recommend him.

I have had excellent experiences with Dr. Guzman, and I would highly recommend him. Unfortunately, the office is terrible. I have been trying to schedule an appointment for three weeks and every time I call I get a (literal) busy signal. No ringing, no chance to leave a message, no response to emails. If you can reach the office to schedule an appointment, I give 5 stars to Dr. Guzman. One star for accessibility and the staff.
