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.

He has helped me tremendously and would highly recommend him. Unfortunately for me ,he is closing his Richmond practice. He will be missed. I had unbelievable panic attacks. He was my second Doctor and he has been great for 17 years. My level of 10 of panic attacks went down sharply because of great treatment.
