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.

Beware , this psychiatrist should have her license taken away. I feel that she is a danger to her patients, getting confused with files and patients , making numerous mistakes with medications and not remembering very important facts in her patients cases. She becomes angry and very pushy if you don’t feel comfortable with certain meds , she insists you take medication you don’t want to take , she doesn’t listen to patients concerns and input. She is the worse dr I have ever met with and for your safety , I caution people to reconsider your choice in psychiatrists if you are even contemplating seeing her. All seems good in the beginning but it quickly turns south including her misdiagnosing and not treating with appropriate medication and doses . I learned the hard way and it was a truly traumatic experience that I’m still getting over , I hope I can save people fr experience what I did.

I asked her for my records and she told me that my records were in a safe but can't find the keys to the lock. I told her about my feelings and how I feel about things that bother me and she told my ex husband everything I told about which I trusted her with. I told her about me leaving my ex husband that he would control me and anyway and I asked her for so advice but said don't divorce. To me seems that it's ok for him to hurt me and control me? I don't think she is a great dr so NO stars!
