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.

Horrible experience!! She put me on opioids for five years for chronic pain. I followed all requirements of our contract. We both agreed that I should stop taking the oxiocodone. Dr Scheft dropped me as her patient and let my PCP handle the weening process. I thought she was the expert on addiction!! As soon as I was addicted she didn’t want me as her patient. Lousy thing to do.

2nd visit she told me to decrease med that I did not take because she told me it could increase my already high BP and that my problems were like comparing apples to oranges and that she was too busy to reschedule my appointment and would call me after she finds a day treatment program for me in my area. She also told me to change my care (primary) and I told her no that I would not change because I was treated at the healthcare office since 2011. I left the office so sick with anxiety;
