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.

AMAZING!
I knew that I needed to see a psychiatrist but was always afraid to make the first step. When I met with Dr. Gefter, within 5 minutes he had me laughing and I sighed with relief. He makes you completely comfortable and truly listens to you. He's caring and I look forward to seeing him!

Amazing doctor and all around human being. He saved my life and my marriage. I travel 40 minutes to see him and will continue to do so for the amazing care that he gives. As a person with medication resistant major depressive disorder it is an exhausting process that takes time. If you want a knowledgeable doctor who actually cares look no further.
