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.

Horrible Psychiatrist
Brought my teenage son to see Dr. Hammer & he ignored my concerns. Child was suspended from school several times & about to be expelled. First appt doctor took him off his depression medicine that the inpatient behavioral hospital had him put on because of self-harm, depression & claimed he wasn't depressed. Mixed up all his adhd medicine (claimed his pediatrician didn't know what he was doing w/ his adhd meds) & told my child when he turns 16 he can make his own mental health decisions. Now I have a teen who refuses to take medicine & refuses to see a psychiatrist thanks to Dr. Hammer. I would stay away from him at all costs!!!
