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. Jager is not bad himself, but the administration of the office is horrible. They act like you are bothering them, and they never answer the phone. I had an appointment and ran into traffic as I live an hour away. I tried to call, but of course no answer. I was 10 minutes late, and was told that he had just left. Why wouldn't you call me to confirm before he leaves? Terrible. Oh, just reschedule! yeah, I have to take off work and drive all the way down there, totally cool lady.

Dr. Jagar is nice and kind if you are easy. Writing fat scripts gets lots of pharma rep meals. He is a gem when it comes to that. Truth is, he despises his patients when they get a little difficult. Mental illness is difficult. He is in the wrong field and has hurt people in my family and people I know with his runaway script writing. Beware.

Dr Jager dispenses scripts for anything you want. My wife had no indications of ADHD but left with a high dose of adderal that has all but ruined our family. Be very careful these drugs have severe side effects. And it intensifies any problems you may already be experiencing.

Dr. Jagar is a good doctor and a genuinely good human being. I've been his patient since September 2013. He has stuck with me through the worst of times. I feel that he genuinely cares about me.

Dr Jagar has treated my high schoolers now for over a year. Very comfortable with the staff and doctor. He took time to really figure out the issue. He took the care and time to get them both on the correct medicine and monitors very close. I feel they are in the care of the best doctor possible for ADHD. Would strongly recommend Dr Jagar.

Dr. Jagar is the standard by which ALL other psychiatric, as well as non-psychiatric, doctors should be measured. He is COMPASSIONATE & COMPETENT, and his friendly, genuine, down-to-Earth nature instantly makes one feel completely at ease! Because of his intimate knowledge of various medications, and his spot-on recommendations as to which medicine he feels would work best for me, the quality of my life has improved significantly. I feel truly blessed, and fortunate, for having found him!
