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.

Dr. Merai has been my daughter’s psychiatrist for a couple years. I can not recommend this man enough. His knowledge, demeanor with children, compassion towards parents is amazing. There were several emergency incidents I had, and his office was able to reach him immediately and contact me and I was able to get the advice and help I needed after hours for my child. Child psychiatrists are not easy to come by, if Dr. Merai has a wait list to see him, it is definitely worth it to become one of his established patients. You won’t regret it.

Dr. Merai is hands down my absolute favorite child psychiatrist! I know several people who send their children to him, and have only the best things to say about him. Compassionate, dedicated, above and beyond. This is the doctor you want to be in your kid’s corner when they are struggling. As a mental health professional myself, I know a great doctor when I meet one. And Dr Merai is the best!

I feel Dr. Merai is an excellent physician. He takes the time to listen and just doesn't jump at the chance to prescribe a bunch of medications. He has made a world of difference with my son.
