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.

I saw Dr. Szetela years ago. He helped me greatly with anxiety issues. I was a reluctant patient. But he was consistently patient and flexible. He is a kind man who seemed to care. Mine was a slightly more complicated case. He failed to pick up on a second condition, but in all fairness, most doctors didn't pick up on it either. Only a few other more sophisticated, or perhaps more skilled, clinicians noticed or suspected this. I don't fault him for this. His scope might be a little narrow. There are more sophisticated and knowledgeable clinicians out there. But he is competent, works well with patients, and his heart is squarely in the right place.

Dr. Szetela has been my psychiatrist for about 17 years and has been absolutely fantastic. He is gracious and kind, and truly cares about me. He answers my questions and has kept me healthy. He even meets with me at night when I need it. I have absolutely no complaints about him whatsoever.
