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.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get far enough for a visit. I am military and received a referral for my son through Humana. When I attempted to make an appointment I was very rudely informed by his staff that he only accepts new patients if ‘they’re going to be in the area for at least 10 years’. Quite honestly, that’s a BS way of saying ‘we don’t want you’ because regardless of my military status no one is going to be able to guarantee they won’t move in 10 years.

Office sent the bill to my father, stating he was responsible for the amount when he was not. During my “evaluation,” Dr. Sales never once asked about any of my symptoms or my current medications. Dr. Sales asked questions about faith and intrusive questions about personal relationships. In my follow-up appointment, Dr. Sales lied to me about reviewing my records and that he didn't know what doses my previous medications were and the time I was on the medications. My records contain all that information. When I called him out for it, he told me to leave and won't treat me as a patient. Please don't come here as Dr. Sales has the most fragile ego of any doctor I have ever seen.

Dr. Sales is a very caring and professional psychiatrist. I have been seeing him for over 10 years. He only asks questions related to my condition. He has never been hostile or belligerent to me. He has helped me control my depression and anxiety. I would definitely recommend him.

Current staff is much friendlier than the staff that used to be there A little more talking and explanation of what you’re suffering from would be good Overall I think it’s a good place to go

Dr. Sales was unprofessional bordering on abusive. He used technical jargo and was condescending when I didn't understand, interupted while I answered his questions, challenged me verbally for statements I did not make, and injected his personal situation (saying he was a narcissist) during my only meeting with him. He was beligerent that I did not have, in writing, my 30+ year mental health history even though I had less than 24 hours notice for my appointment. Reporting to licensing board.

The office visit with Dr Sales was extremely positive, helpful, and beneficial! He listened very carefully, was a true professional in every possible way and made me feel comfortable the entire time. The office staff was also great!

It is true, that the staff is very rude. Dr. Sales does not listen and gets very aggressive when questioned about medication changes. I stuck with him for a year and a half despite negative side effects I was having because I trusted him to tell me to do what was best for my health. That was wrong, he did not listen to me and left me on medication that was hurting. He is careless to the point of being unethical.

Dr spends to much time asking questions that don't relate to symptoms such as what is your religious beliefs, also seems not to trust any other Dr's evaluation. He doesn't appear to be very attentive during our short visit. This all looks very unprofessional and untrustworthy.

Dr. Sales hasn't been thoughtful and attentive during our visits. I'm glad I found him in the Quad City area.

Does not make eye contact, asks inappropriate/irrelevant questions regarding religion and ethnic background, does not spend any time asking about actual symptoms or behavior. Talks very quickly, does not trust the patient, nor does he encourage the patient to trust themselves. Would not recommend to anyone, this man should not be prescribing anyone serious medications. Staff aren't pleasant, but do the bare minimum. He rushes the entire meeting, does not take any time to know patients

Extremely unprofessional and spends more time asking unrelated and borderline inappropriate questions than he does on treating patients. His staff is incredibly rude and phone calls are rarely returned within 24 hours, if at all. Not to mention, his actual office where he meets with patients is cluttered and cramped.
