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 Desai
Dr Desai is not who he portrays himself to be. He saw my son for over a year and on each visit it became apparent that he was more focused on getting paid for his jibber jabbish than anything else. Do not let him fool you with his "calm" demeanor.

×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Chirag Desai, MD?
Dr. Desai is the first Psychiatrist who has spent any time alone with my daughter to talk to her without me. He has been excellent with getting my daughter’s buy in to her medications and didn’t make her feel bad for stopping and starting them. He listens to her concerns about the medication and has helped find one that meets her needs and alleviates some of her concerns about them. In short, he has been a huge part in my daughter’s improving mental health.
