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. Sivtsov is a rare find, a doctor who works with you and listens with detail and compassion. His knowledge and care shine through in a way that is beyond compare. In 2017 I had a significant depressive relapse and his office provides TMS, difficult to find and a genuine life-changer. It pulled me through and out of my darkest hours. I almost couldn't believe how effective the TMS was, and I hope more people can benefit. He, his staff, and his office were all helpful, supportive, and flexible. TMS changed my life so significantly that when COVID hit and the isolation reignited my depression, I returned again for TMS and am beyond grateful to have had the psychological resources to make it through the year. Highly recommended amongst a sea of psychiatrists without the knowledge of newer interventions. Thank you Dr. Sivtsov, the world needs many more of you.

Dr Sivtsov will not treat humans over the age of 70 irrespective of whether they are functional and working or not. That is "ageism" and should be forbidden.
