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.

Dr Ruggles' approach to helping our son was more effective than anything we found during his formative years--and we saw many doctors. Dr Ruggles was thoughtful and measured in his approach; and didn't offer simple, ineffective solutions that other doctors did. He's skilled and wise and caring.

I am a parent of 2 adopted children with major mental illness. Dr. Ruggles has been their psychiatrist for a total of 12 years. He has the perfect art of medicine and compassion and has helped me keep going when I thought it was all to much. He refers out when he needs to and also affirms my girls in the most amazing ways. He has truly been one of the main reasons I have survived and at times even thrived through this journey of special needs parenting.
