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.CHENEY GAVE MY SON LEXAPRO 3 MONTHS AGO CAUSING HIM TO HAVE AN ADVERSE REACTION. EVEN KNOWING HE PRESCRIBED HIM ANOTHER SSRI A YEAR BEFORE THIS WITH SAME REACTION. HIS LIFE HAS BEEN A LIVING HELL SINCE THIS HAPPENED WITH A MULTITUDE OF HEALTH ISSUES AND DR. CHENEY DOESN'T WANT TO STEP UP AND DO THE RIGHT THING TO DO FURTHER TESTING OR TRY TO HELP US IN ANY WAY. IT'S HORRIBLE HOW SOME DOCTORS WANT TO PRESCRIBE MEDICINE TO CHILDREN OR ADULTS WITH NO CARE YOU COULD CAUSE PERMANENT DAMAGE.
