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.

This is a great doctor due to the fact that she is a down to earth person. Very friendly and really makes sure her patients are taken care of. I give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars because the time can be a little bit over 10 minutes once in a blue moon but it is worth it!

I have been seeing this doctor for almost 3 years now and is by far the best doctor i have ever experienced. When it comes to finding out a diagnosis and ways to treat a problem, she takes all of the time in the world to figure out the best solution. She is so well organized and has always been good with time so as the staff. thank you comprehensive psychiatric health services for being so reliable

Melissa is late for every appointment my child has had with her and we always book her 1st appointment of that day. She is never ready, her office is a mess and she grabs any piece of paper to write down information from our appointment. She never has my child's chart available and doesn't remember whats going on in my child's life. She just does medication management. The girls who answer the phones to make an appointment are so rude, her staff is just awful!
