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.

If he lets you get a word in that would be nice. All he cares about is billing insurance almost $300 for a so called “therapeutic session which consisted of a 15 minute conversation and about ten dollars worth of medicine in his draw. Guy is a real class act, he didn’t even had my file with him the lady at the desk bought it to him while he was just going on from his memory, he did had a folder though to pretend it was mine. It’s 50/50 with him he can help you but also not the best

My experience with Dr. Litwin was excellent. I saw him when he was a psychiatrist at CPC in Freehold. He went up and beyond what was required. He addressed my many physical issues which were impacting my mental health. He understood we are not separate parts, but a whole person. He addressed my various neuropathies and facial pain/trigeminal neuralgia/TMG, which were having a very detrimental affect on me. He also spent more than the allotted time when it was necessary. I highly recommend him.
