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.

If I could give zero stars, I would. From the second I sat down I knew I should’ve walked out. From the reception staff complaining about how miserable they were, to the practitioner Jason Watts not taking my mental health seriously, to me having a breakdown as I left because I felt worse than when I came in. He assumed what I could afford for medication and wouldn’t give me a prescription for what he initially wanted to put me on. I had to go through the nurse to get samples and a cheaper way to get the medication (my mom’s a nurse, I know I can get prescriptions cheaper, and he didn’t even try). From the second I sat down in his office I felt judged and I knew I wasn’t gonna get the right treatment. Zero help at all and I’m out $300. Do not go here. I thought from the reviews it can’t be that bad. Trust me, it was worse than I could’ve imagined.

Long wait times. Doesn't listen. Doesn't communicate well. Refuses to acknowledge that we, the patients, have equal say in the decision making process. Doesn't return calls herself, everything is communicated by the nurse. Brusque, dismissive. Go somewhere else.

Dr. Groover is amazing. She took time to listen offer up a treatment plan for me. She took time to listen. I did not feel rushed. Her office staff worked together to get me set up. She definitely knows her work. Dr. Groover, thank you. Looking forward to our follow-up meetings.

Doctor Groover is a good doctor. But really hard to get into. She makes no provisions for any new appointments required in a emergency situation. Sometimes you have to wait months. I would say she is non responsive due to being overbooked. Once you get in she is fine. Triage and new patient intake is substandard. Everything else is fine.

I seen the doctor herself 2 times. I was always seen by Mardee and if she had a question that she couldn’t find in her drug book she would text Dr. Groover. My meds were changed almost every month I was seen. Had bee taking a medication for over 10 yrs. that it simply says DO NOT STOP COLD TURKEY!!!!! Well I was told to stop not gradually. Given a prescription for sleep. I thank GOD I’m still alive. Was told by new Dr. I was very lucky to be alive due to stopping the long term meds cold turkey!,

I saw Dr. Groover & Meridee for 1.5 years before moving. The office staff are very friendly, and professional. Pros: Blunt and honest, astute, asks incisive questions. Takes a full body approach, balancing all conditions and history while trying to not overmedicate. I trust her diagnoses, and suggestions. Listens well, while keeping appointment on track/subject. Cons: Difficult to get in to see regularly, behind schedule/long wait, would have liked some more resources/explanations on diagnoses.

I saw Dr Grover once and that was enough. I will never go back there again. She is not someone that I would recommend. Her staff is great it’s just her. She does not care in the lest about you and she makes quick suggestions without hearing your situation.

My purpose in writing this review is primarily to discourage patients from seeking treatment with Dr.Groover. She is very rude and abrasive. I was seeing her for dizziness/seizure activity. She insisted that I check into a mental hospital immediately. I was floored. I left her office in disbelief. She was a friend of the family and I still can hardly believe her behavior. Please don’t waste your time and money with this person.

Very rude and unprofessional. My husband who has 4-5 different mental illnesses was diagnosed with 2-3 of them from her. Her exact quotes " You should have been put on disability at the age of 18." When he applied for disability, they denied him because of her saying he was non-compliant. When for #1: We didn't have the money to continue the services there and #2 She put him on so much medicine he was a zombie (literally took me sometimes over an hr to wake him and still then was not functional.

I saw this lady a few times. I heard her tell her nurse to hurry that she needs to go. I was having side effects from the medication she prescribed. She became very upset and rude. She discontinued all of my meds and put me on a diet. Now I am a wreck. Please do not go to this doctor. You will experience nothing but negligence and sarcasm.

I was referred to this clinic by my neurologist. I was referred 3 weeks ago, never received any info. I called today to make an appt and was told I could not make one until they received the packet. They will not mail another one b/c it is to expensive and are booking 3 months out. The girl. said she would email it to me but I would have to bring it in and then they would schedule me. I work 5 days a week and it will be hard for me to get the packet back. Jumping hoops is not the the help i need

I waited over a month to get in. The person I saw said she would call me back that day or the following day after my neurologist appointment. She never called. Even after several attempts at trying to get a hold of someone. They finally said, they could not help me unless I made another appointment. I spent every last penny I have for the appt. And will not have anything extra for a while. It's very disappointing.
