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.

She is very condescending and impersonal?. I had a horrible interaction with her and highly recommend working with ANYONE ELSE. If I could give her zero stars, I would.

We had Dr. Thygeson when our daughter had it so bad she ended up in the hospital. We had many doctors through diagnosis after diagnosis and they change medications. Dr. Thygeson told us to bring in old psychological tests and explained it to us and then did some genetic testing. Our daughter is 10 years old and Dr. Thygeson was the one to diagnose her genetic condition that her other doctors couldn't figure out all these years. Lo, and behold, an excellent doctor.
