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.

From our very first appointment Dr. Michael Marcus was extremely realistic, straightforward, and correct with an understanding of not only my diagnosis but individual needs. If you want a doctor to "yes man" you to death, you should look elsewhere. He is prompt, on point, and willing to treat you as an individual between what he believes you while considering what you want. This guy is my favorite Dr. already as he set up an open line of no nonsense communication and was happy to come to a mutual agreed upon treatment plan tailored to my needs as patient whom is in a managerial position and starting a small business. 10/10 from me. I sincerely thank you, Dr. Marcus!!!

Dr. Marcus actually took the time to listen and trust me that I knew what medications had and had not worked for me over the span of my continuing care. I didn't feel guilty of judged for saying something didn't working and asking to try something else. After coming from the VA where I was just a number in a larger algorithm, I cried from relief when I got off the call. I'm so happy I went through with seeing Dr. Marcus.

We didn't get the link for the online appointment until right at the time of the appointment, which was a little surprising.

After experiencing a mental health crisis and needing to take time away from school, but insurance directed me to dr Marcus. At the first session, he told me that I was a “loser” for dropping out of school and said that he could understand why I wanted to jill myself. Complaint to follow

Let's start of with The truth. Dr. Marcus is an insincere, disenengenious psychiatrist. I wrote a good write up a couple of years ago; He is a mercenary; All he cares about is his Insurance payment. He is cold, the most umsympthetic psychiatrist I have ever met. I have an MA IN Counseling PSYCH; He has no empathy, no time to isten and no time except to collect his insurance $$$$$$$. H does not listen, nor care to!! I am leaving; He should leave the profession as he is careless and neglectful of his patients!! Never make an appt. with him; there ARE HUNDREDS OF OTHERS WHO ARE EMPATHIC; he doesn't know the meanng of the word!!! Bad news!! He has lots of negative reviews; DO NOT MAKE AN APPT with this loser !!
