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.

I have been seeing Dr Bright for around 7 years and he has never truly been interested in my mental health. When I had my first actual crisis this past week, he has done nothing for me to help. I knew I should have changed doctors years ago, but stayed because change is hard when you have anxiety and adhd. I hope someone sees this and doesn’t make my mistake.

I wouldn't even give this "doctor" one star. Didn't look at patient, only at his laptop while asking questions and taking notes - VERY IMPERSONAL!!!! I wouldn't send my worst enemy there. He shouldn't be practicing medicine here or anywhere. Assumed thoughts of patient and judged.

I have been seeing Dr. Bright for over a year & each appointment has been pleasant. He doesn't rush me through our appointments & always takes the time to listen to me & how I'm feeling. I feel Dr. Bright truly cares about me as a patient. Also, for the first 10 months I was seeing him I didn't have insurance, & had to pay completely out of pocket The first appointment, I believe was $500, & they were nice enough to let me put only $50 down & make payments. He has helped me in every way he can.
