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 saw Dr. Tancer on and off during most of my adolescence. During that time she prescribed over a dozen heavy psychotropic medications for me, which wreaked havoc on my body and brain. I'm still dealing with many of the effects of her "treatment" to this day. In spite of her once telling me I'd never be successful in life without medication, I've made a successful life for myself and have been medication free for well over a decade. When the history of the era of irresponsible doctors pushing too much medication on adolescents is written, doctors like Dr. Tancer will be held up as particularly shameful examples. I can only guess how much she's personally profited off over-prescribing medication to vulnerable children and manipulating scared parents into protracted, ineffective treatment regimens. If you're serious about getting your child psychiatric treatment, almost any other doctor would be a better choice

She treated my brothers and I (me since 2nd grade). I was behind all my peers learning reading and writing. After being diagnosed and treated I caught back up in a few short months and ended up going to NYU years later.

Dr. TANCER correctly diagnosed by son and helped him immeasurably. He was then able to perform well in school and eventually go on to college and law school. Thank you Dr. Tancer for all you have done for my son and our family.

Horrible "tack on more chemicals until the combination works," "recommend corporate treatment centers so that we can say we spent more time in treatment" approach to zombification-school psychiatry.
