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.

Just made an introductory call to him and he immediately asked my age (55) and he creakily said I was at his "age limit." I asked why he has a limit if he does adults and he said he usually does kids and people who are younger and they don't have medical issues older people might. He said "I don't do geriatrics." I told him I'm not a geriatric, then he proceeded to ask if I had health problems. I said I have a couple minor ones, and then he said, "It's not a natural fit and good luck." What an a**hole. I wouldn't go to this guy even if I made his ageist cutoff. Yes, he is super arrogant!

I don't know what the other respondent is talking about. Dr. Pechter does not use a laptop in sessions. I found him to be a good listener, careful about informing patients regarding medications and side effects, and very thorough. I have had no problems and appreciate that he will communicate via email and text.

This doctor should not be practicing. His ego is larger than his desire to truly help others. He misdiagnosed my child and was rude. Every time my child had a session, Pechter would ask what the diagnosis was and what medications they were on! Most of each session was spent with Pechter typing in his laptop. He is a terrible listener. Awful.
