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.

On cool, after reading reviews I actually feel better! I thought it was me, but yes, she is a money grubbing UNprofessional. She actually told me that they're not there to care about me! Before my last appointment I called a few days ahead to reschedule, only to be told she closed her practice and that I should have gotten a letter in the mail. I never did! No idea where my records are! Haven't had a doctor in over two years! Actually doing better without the meds!

I highly recommend taking TMS at Dr. Sidhu's office, it has proven to be so beneficial in my life and has changed my outlook drastically. I think Dr. Sidhu takes time and listens at least, she did with me, probably more than any other psychiatrist has ever before. Most psychiatrist ask you what is wrong, write a prescription, send you on your way and charge you $200. Dr. Sidhu always took time to listen to me and answer any questions that I may have had.

The wait for appointment is long, does not take time with patient, and did not prescribe medication that I needed! Put me on several press. That were expensive getting a few at a time!

Front desk was very rude & turned me away on my first visit. I showed up at the time they texted to me instead of an hour earlier like I was told I should have known. They were so rude I had an anxiety attack in my car in the parking lot after that. Stupid me went for 3 more visits & had to wait an hour each time. I never actually saw Dr. Sidhu but another lady in back. She mostly talked about herself & her problems. Her prognosis for me was to question me why was I even there & to get on meds.

I would not send my worst enemy to this woman. After I quit her I sought treatment elsewhere where I was told she committed medical abuse. As a direct result of her actions I have endured 7 months with extreme PTSD and Major Depressive Disorder that sent me to the hospital three times. DO NOT GO EVEN IF IT MEANS A LONG WAIT TO GET IN WITH SOMEONE ELSE!

This will be my last visit here. Appointments run one to two hours behind. Doctor overbooks to make more money. Unprofessional ethics.

I do not recommend this Dr. I walk in one day and the entire office staff had quit; not a good sign., Appts are scheduled too close together and the first few visits, I had to wait 2 hrs. past my scheduled appt. The Dr. also seems to get irritated and rude if you question her decisions.

Horrible experience! It's almost comedy,how bad my last visit went at Dr. Sidhu office, The Wellness Clinic. There was no office staff, patients were walking in because they could get anyone on the phones, and the wait time was over 2 hours. I stood at the counter for 45 minutes waiting to be checked in. No apologies and the only advice Dr. Sidhu offered was reschedule but when your 2 hours in and only couple people left, who would want to start all over.
