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. Maxwell goes out of his way to find the best treatment for his patients. My daughter has been his patient for almost 5 years. He is quite good at working "out of the box" for problems other physicians have given up on. Keep in mind that for complex patients, there may be charges that are not covered by insurance but are crucial to helping in diagnosis. We have found value in everything we have done with him. It helps to be a motivated patient family as well!

If you are looking for a primary care coordinator that stays up to date with all of the latest research and has a network of other specialists that treat dysautonomia patients, then Dr. Maxwell is the right fit for you and your child! He listens to your children and actually cares about them. He makes no promises for a magical cure, but spends hours of his personal time including weekends to fight for our children to help them be as well as possible! Mother of two Potsies!

He will charge you $3,000 just to see him and his front office won’t call you back you have to call them over and over again. And then there’s insurance billing and another fee of his just to email you (which is basically a patient portal that is free everywhere else) I’ve waited months and right as I was about to get an appointment she wants my moms credit card. No trustworthy doctor would ever do this. Going to Stanford instead
