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.

She was my first and only therapist. I’ve never had any after because of her. She was the most judgmental person I’ve ever met and I hope no one has to deal with this. If someone is legitimately going to a therapist, I hope they don’t have her. I said “I can’t stop drinking, and I know I’m taking the antidepressants, but the alcohol isn’t helping my antidepressants”. She said “well just stop drinking.” Awesome. My friends help more than that, which is why I’m still alive! If you have to ask your

Although this doctor is not very young she seems very inexperienced. She might work well if you have a mild problem but in complicated cases I would not recommend her.

Dr. Okezie is amazing. She really listens to our input and puts a lot of thought into how to best help my teen daughter. Unlike other doctors we've seen, we never feel rushed or pressured to following some cookie-cutter course of treatment.

I have relied on the services of Dr Okezie for a number of years. She has never disappointed me and my family. I always ended our conversations feeling heard, understood, and helped. I would recommend her to everyone i know.
