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.

have been seeing him on/off over 10 years. I've never found out what my REAL problem is. everyone has some level of anxiety & ocd, but other than him saying I can give you stronger drugs but you won't be able to function normally or to read books that i really don't have time to read due to work & family obligations, I'm disappointed that he couldn't fix me. Also, he's no longer private practicing. I've got a returned check for my payment & NO communications from his office to notify me of that.
