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.

×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Laura McMahon, MD?
I would not recommend Dr. Mc. Mahon to anyone. She is rude and condescending. She is very unprofessional and unethical. She ripped me apart in front of my 6 year old daughter and my 16 year old daughter who was the patient for anxiety and depression. If the allegations she was stating were her actual feelings than she had 24 hours to report me to CPS. I waited 3 days. No one came because both her and I knew it was not true. Speaking to supervisor did not help.
