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.

Dr. Karni is not only our area's best expert regarding Pediatric Psychiatry, autism, medications, etc., she is a compassionate advocate. She has worked tirelessly to tweak our child's medications. So glad we trusted her because she was right about everything! 7 years later and our child with severe autism is learning and thriving (and sleeping- thank God). Not enough space to express our respect and thanks for her support. A REAL EXPERT among too many charlatans, posers, & know-it-alls!

She is consistently an hour late for appointments. The customer service at her practice is beyond poor. They have a sign posted stating that families may be rescheduled and charged for a visit if they show up more than 15 minutes late, but are completely exempt from holding themselves to that same standard that they demand of others. It's arrogant and absurd. It's impossible to get a live person on the phone. Calls go unreturned. Lastly, no early or late hours, and no weekends.
