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.

I have been seeing Dr. Stanford for over 15 years and I am so so grateful that I am under his care. He truly cares about his patients and never gives up on me. He is very knowlegeble about all the medications, to treat depression, anxiety, bi-polar etc. It is very clear that Dr. Stanford loves being a psychiatrist and making a difference in his patients lives.
