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.

Dr. Emerson is practical and straightforward with parents and patients. My kids and I all appreciate and respond well to her "no b.s." approach, but others might prefer someone more warm and fuzzy. But she is a great fit for me and my kids (both boys). I also appreciate that she respects our preferences re: whether to medicate, etc. She handles her own scheduling which means there is sometimes a delay in hearing back, etc. But nothing too bad.

The initial visit with our daughter was great. She had me sign a release so that she could discuss our daughters plan of care but then Dr. Emerson moved her office. Our daughter saw her again and Dr. Emerson would not return our calls after we called her and left three voicemails. When she charges $225 an hour it is expected that she would at least return a phone call!
