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. Gellar is one of the top OCD doctors in the country. My child had suffered tremendously from OCD, anxiety and depression. We took him to numerous doctors. Nobody had an answer or a treatment plan, and worse, didn't really seem to care. Dr. Gellar is a God send. Having him on our side is something that is hard for me to express in writing. He saved our son and also us, as parents. He is a brilliant doctor and a kind man. He is easy to reach and has even returned calls on weekends.

I definitely would not recommend Dr Geller. We waited almost a year for an appointment for our son who has serious OCD. Even though we told Dr Geller our son had a problem with addiction, he prescribed a benzodiazepine. When asked why he wouldn't tell us. He instead told us if we didn't like it that he would be happy to give us the name of another Dr. The Next Dr our son saw said he would never prescribe a benzodiazepine to an adolescent with an addiction history.
