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.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Nichols for 2 years. He is very knowledgeable and compassionate. He’s willing to spend enough time with me to discuss my concerns and is willing to change medications, even if I’ve been on them for a while, if I feel they’re not doing any good. I really like him and I’m glad I have him as my psychiatrist.

Dr. Nichols treats me as humans and not as a diagnosis. He listens to what I have to say, and incorporates my preferences into treatment.
