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.

Because of the chronic clinical depression and addiction I've struggled with all my life, I thought psychiatry had done all it could for me several years ago. I had essentially given up, thinking I would just have to get through on my own. But only a year ago I sank into a paralyzing depression again and I thought this might be the end. This episode was vastly different however, because this time I had the good fortune to come under the expert care of Dr. Richard Soper. Without question, Dr. Soper is the most effective psychiatrist I have ever consulted, and I have seen a bunch of them. He listens carefully and respectfully; he absorbs one's history quickly; and he explains his understanding of the patient's personality and conflicts clearly and credibly. He has always been right on target with me. I have developed the highest degree of trust in Dr. Soper and I recommend him without hesitation. Thank you, Dr. Richard Soper.

I went to Dr. Soper for an evaluation. I found him to be thorough, efficient, and effective. He was always available if I called and answered all my questions. More than that though, he gave me the encouragement and straight forward direction that I really needed. I am very thankful that I chose him.

Dr. Soper is seriously the best therapist I've ever had. He doesn't just sit there and listen to you talk, he explains things, he's insightful, he really cares about his profession. I've seen numerous therapists and none of them compare. I have made more progress in my life in a few months than a few YEARS at larger medical facilities. If you're considering anyone for therapy, he's the one, without a doubt.
