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.

Absolute worst experience
Nicole is extremely disrespectful. They repeatedly told us it would take 5 months for an appointment for an existing patient. Refused to refill medicine for a patient all out of their psych meds. Didn’t answer the phone when we were stuck in traffic. Showed up on time at their old office so we called repeatedly. They answered 10 minutes after the appointment and informed us they had moved and the time had been missed. Then tried to reschedule in 2 months.Actively made mental health worse. This is why people are scared to take care of their mental health.

Very good listener. I felt really comfortable sharing with her about my history and symptoms. She reassured me that how I feel about the medication is priority and that I do have control. I highly recommend her!

She had my prior diagnosis from Dr. Patel. Explained to her what I was currently experiencing and she basically said "well I can put you on _________ medication , but its totally up to you". I thought I had gone to the Dr. for her professional opinion and medical recommendation, but apparently you just get to decide yourself on how to treat. Was very disappointed.
