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 took my child to be evaluated by another phychiatrist because this Doctor never did. The report was sent to Dr. Desai who when we went to an appointment he was not aware of the report. We know it was recieved. We continue to have problems getting medications. My child stresses when she has to deal with employees which in turn stresses family members. It is almost impossible to get any answers over the phone. Sorry, because of these issues, I can not recommend this doctor or Walnut Ave Asso
