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 feel he did not listen to me seriously. Instead of having a conversation about my history and needs, Dr. Dave needed me to convince him the validity of my statements. It is good to be critical, but it felt like I was a criminal being grilled by a prosecuter, rather than a patient talking to a doctor. I was told I need $500 worth of testing not covered by insurance (with no explanation why) before he would see me again. I went in for help with anxiety.

Dr. Dave saved my life...literally, his compassion and dedication to making sure I felt like a normal person was his top priority. He is so easy to talk to and I recommend both him and his wife to anyone who is needing or looking to change their Doctor.

Dr. Dave is one of the kindest, most compassionate people I've ever met. I love his approach to mental health - traditional psych treatment but also a strong understanding of how the brain is part of the body.

Abosolutely horrible. I don’t think doctor Dave took the vow to help his patient. He might take the vow to try his best to take patients’ money.

I've been seeing Dr. Dave for several years now, and I believe he sees bipolar disorders as a result of chemical imbalances in the brain and prescribes various medications until you can function on the right combination and he's been referred to negatively because of this. You should find a therapist if you need to learn life skills in dealing with mental health issues and join a sponsored group in your area, Dr. Dave's not one for hour long discussions, ranting, raving, and crying.

Awful awful practice. Everything about this man and his team is so unprofessional, over charged, and extremely rude. DO NOT GO TO DR DAVE.

I am surprised that Dr. Dave is still in practice. He is rude, impatient and has serious issues in communication. He considers my question about the medicine a waste of his time after I barely sat in his office for more than 10 min. He prescribed me nutritional supplements I cannot afford. When I asked him for cheaper options, he took offense very dramatically and asked me to "go find other doctors if you don't trust me." Just do not go to him!

Dr. Dave saved my adult son's life. Three other doctors had written him off, saying he should be institutionalized. Dr. Dave helped him so much that he now has a happy life.

Dr. Dave should have his licenses revoked. He is extremely dishonest and takes advantage of people suffering from depression and other mental illnesses. He charges extreme fees for services that are free elsewhere. One day he requested that my dad come by just so he could meet him, and then charged an extra $75 because my father sat in his office for less than five minutes. He is a crook.

Dr Dave has treated my son and me for several years. My son had severe depression and anxiety disorders. He wouldn't leave the house by the time he turned 15. When he was ready to ask for help, Dr Dave was instrumental in my son's overcoming his fears. In my opinion, Dr Dave saved my son's life. He is excellent at choosing the right medication for the right person. I appreciate and respect him.
