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.

Depression and anxiety have plagued my adult son most of his life. We are so very thankful that we found Dr. Alkhatib. He took the time needed to get to know my son, asking many questions, always encouraging, direct, thoughtful and professional. He researched the best treatments for him and reduced the many meds that he had been prescribed in the past. We recommend Dr. Alkhatib highly. He is a gifted and caring psychiatrist.

Dr. Alkhatib appears to have turned toward making money and away from providing sound care for adolescents. In farming out his decision-making and prescription writing to a team of inexperienced PA's is egregious and borderline calls for board action. The PA we met with has been working for roughly 3 months and could not answer my basic questions, but was more than willing and kept insisting on writing a prescription. There is more to share, but I have run out of room...
