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.

Cannot say enough good things about this doctor! The first visit we had we spent almost 2 and a half hours talking about everything other than psychiatry! Being a methadone patient, it was an incredible coup that I was able to speak to the man who started the 1st methadone clinic in America! It's like being a diabetic and meeting the person who invented injection insulin! He is a treasure and he really made me look at things in a positive way.
