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. Chandak is fabulous. I always feel better after talking to her, my outlook isn't as dark as it was when I walked in. That's what everyone, I think, wants when they see their psychiatrist. I like her style. She is thoughtful and direct and that works for me. After reading the other reviews I have to think that there were personality clashes because Dr. Chandack is neither judgemental nor a gossip.

Dr Chandak and the psychiatry department of jcmc is a terror for anyone with mental imbalance. While doing diagnostic she gets judgemental as if I did something wrong and that's why I'm suffering. The stuff of this department doesn't know anything about patient privacy and shares all patients information with everyone including other patients who are drug abusers. I wish her license is revoked as she doesn't care about what's happening in her department.
