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.

This office screens their new patient calls. If you are on the Affordable Care Act Insurance, they say they are not taking patients.

Dr Lopez is by far the most competent, diligent and respectable psychiatrists in Pinellas County. I've never had a Dr remember specific details about my life that I briefly mentioned to him in past appointments. Maybe he reviews my chart before my appointment or maybe he doesn't but to me the fact that he wants me to know that I'm not just a human dollar sign is good enough for me. I have had some awful experiences w/ therapists in the past and Dr Lopez put my faith back in behavioral health!

I have seen Dr. Lopez for over 13 years for major depression and anxiety. After working to stabilize my medications, I am relatively free from symptoms. He always listens and works with me when my situation may change or there is an event that I believe he can help with. He has my well being in mind and my trust.

I have been seeing Dr. Lopez for over eight years. I remember when I first met him. I was a miserable twenty some year old kid. Since then he has helped me grow so much. I only live in FL part time and a big part of that is due to him. He respects me and my schedule. I will never switch doctors ever. I trust him so much. He listens to me, gives me suggestions and positive feedback. If you are looking for someone who you can talk to and who will listen... I highly recommend him.

Dr. Ron Lopez has a very compassionate and warming personality. I first started seeing him five years ago w/my symptoms diagnosed. I felt really relaxed and at home due to his warm demeanor. He helped me diagnose my symptoms. If you or someone you love is struggling with depression, schizophrenia, or bi-polar disorder; I would highly recommend him. He has helped me and I feel like he really cares for me and doesn't treat me as another number!
