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.

Genuinely Passionate
My experience with Dr. Rana was the first time I felt like a psychiatrist genuinely wanted me to get better rather than just throwing pills at my symptoms. I would recommend her to any college students struggling with stress and anxiety. Her approach doesn't just rely on medicalizing your feelings but rather addresses your mental health holistically and treating it with a combination of different strategies. Please reach out to her if other's have disappointed you. I can confidently say she actually cares about my improvement.

Impersonal, distant and ... almost waiting for you to be done and gone. From an era when doctor tells you what you do - you do it. Ask no questions. Feels like an inquest and not an intake... Lacks empathy
