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 was so eager to meet with Dr. Pitch. Spoke with Sherri who was going to check on my insurance. Disappointingly, she called to tell me that he did not take my insurance so I told her I would have to cancel my appointment because I could NOT afford the out of pocket cost. Sherri actually called me back to offer a lower rate but I said it was still too much for me (single mom of 3). Well, she never cancelled my appointment and now I am receiving a bill in the mail for a no show!!!! imagine that!

I had depression for 20+ yrs and could not continue any longer fighting this. I was introduced to Dr. Pitch and Sherri his assistant. They fought for 9 months with my insurance comp to get me covered. I finally was approved for TMS. It has been just over a year and my life has changed completely, I finally know what it is like to live without depression. I owe my life the these 2 very wonderful people. Thank you Dr. Pitch and Sherri.
