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 recently parted ways with Dr. Shugarman after 4 years. The main reason is that he started pushing ECT on me, which I wanted no part of. It was also often hard to convince him that the most recent med I was on was putting my anxiety on overload. However—he is kind, competent, and professional. He aggressively attempted to treat my illness with many different approaches (including a year-long fight with my insurance company) for which I am grateful. He is worth trying. I just needed a new route.

I have been seeing Dr. Sugarman for 3 years for Bipolar condition which I've had all my life. As an older person, I've seen a number of psychiatrists over my life while living in other states. He is the best. He understands the problems of older people as they work with bipolar disorder. His suggestions, recommendations, and medication prescriptions have always been helpful. I would recommend him to anyone.
