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.

Office staff is horrible. You can't get through to anyone directly in the office and they don't return calls in a timely manner. They screwed up scheduling several times and caused an unacceptable delay in my daughter's treatment. My recommendation, go elsewhere.

Dr. Amin is the best Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist I have ever met. She's very intelligent and knowledgable while warm and kind. She takes the time to explain her goals for my treatment plan and reasons for meds. I'm so grateful to have been referred to her almost two years ago.
