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.

Very disappointed. Dr. Onel had us keep a behavioral diary, but ran no blood work. She told me to feed my children free range organic chicken and herbs. My children have PANDAS and could have been diagnosed much sooner had she helped. Simple blood work would have been an easy thing to do. I cried when we got the diagnosis years later. If you are looking for a PANDAS dr, do not go to her.

She is the brightest kindest doctor, she gave us hope and confidence at a time when we had little of both. Thanks to her, my daughter Michelle has thrived since her diagnosis. She is a superb student and part of an undefeated freshman soccer team. We will always be thankful to Dr Onel. Thank you to her and her staff
