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 have seen Dr. Rajan for my mental illness that led me to be sent home from my university. She is the first and the most wonderful psychiatrist I have seen. She helped me gain insight into my issues, and came up with a plan to make it easier for me to manage my conditions. She was a light in my life during a very difficult time.
