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. Naidoo treated my child for ADHD and is hands-down the best child psychiatrist we have seen. She really listened and helped us find different medications that worked the best for him. She has moved out of the Capital Region and we hope to find someone equally as competent and caring in our next doctor.
