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.

Would not recommend. Attitude was very pushy. Knowledge was biased and outdated on many things. Highly punitive cancellation policy with no courtesy call for upcoming appointments. Often felt the objective was to sell meds at all costs with very limited concern for patient choice or a person's ability to function while taking them. Misinforms patients regarding medication risks. Relies on the patient to provide her with crucial details about specific dosages of which medications they are taking currently which ought to be written in the chart. Attitude often felt manipulative and disrespectful. General negligence when it came to diagnosis and overprescribing, even when wildly inappropriate. I wholeheartedly expect a snarky and dismissive response like the once written under Scott's post. However, it is important the consumer's voice be heard.

DO NOT RECOMMEND. She seems nice at first, although kind of pushy. From there it went downhill. Instead of doing her job and telling me how I could better myself or how I could begin the process, she essentially just yelled at me. If you don't care about receiving professional care, then she is the one! My favorite quote from her was, "Sounds like a personal problem." How professional of an opinion from a psychiatrist.
