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.

Awful. Initially was very effective at finding meds to help my symptoms. Trouble started later. The guy can't keep his opinions out of his treatment, but will turn around and claim that his focus is on your meds when he can't talk you into his views. If you disagree with him hard enough, he WILL threaten you with the authorities as a mental health professional. Allergic to his phone, impossible to get a hold of him or his office; you will show up to the pharmacy only to find he never filled your script, he and his office will not return their calls in a timely manner, and you will run out of your meds. He likes to write big prescriptions and increase them whenever he can; convincing him you need less meds is like pulling T-Rex teeth. He loaded me up with hundreds of milligrams of notoriously powerful medications, and wouldn't listen to a single word when I told him my life was no longer the mess he initially helped me overcome. I had to kick the stuff myself. Stay far away.

I took my son to see him over 15 years ago. After making me wait because he was being ‘entertained’ by the pharm sales rep, he saw my son. He weighed him and asked how he was doing.(my son lost weight and was very small) Five minutes tops he saw my son He freely gave him various diagnosis and wanted to give him another drug to ‘help’ with homework. Thank goodness I didn’t take his advice to drug my son who is now 6’1 and grew out of his many diagnosis, minus the drugs, no thanks to Dr Snyder.
