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.

Dr. Lustbader diagnosed our 10-yr-old son together with Dr. Stephanie Ehrman on the recommendation of his elementary school psychologist. Drs. Lustbader and Ehrman's diagnosis was nuanced and accurate, opening a window of understanding on our son's behavior that had eluded his parents and prior behavioral health specialists. Their approach was holistic, seeking first to describe and understand how his symptoms and their underlying causes are structured, then assembling a recommended therapeutic approach tailored to address his unique needs, rather than simply checking off a few prevalent symptoms and shunting his case into a single category and prescribing medication on that basis.

Started by saying "I don't usually believe in medication, but...". Overmedicated patient, refused to listen when concerns were expressed, just added more drugs. insisted on multiple family visits at hundreds of dollars a week for a "mental illness" that - it turns out -patient never had (we knew that). Found him arrogant but likeable, and we felt betrayed by putting trust in him, and taken advantage of financially.
