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 saw Dr Dickstein as a teenager. I'd been privately battling an eating disorder and was seeing him for unrelated reasons. Eventually, I worked up the courage to say that I was concerned about my eating habits, and I explained why. Afterward, Dr. Dickstein had the audacity to say "you think like you have anorexia, but you don't look like you have anorexia." He gave a gross misdiagnosis and ignored my concerns about food because I didn't "look" like I had anorexia. Two years later, at 19 years old, I almost died of a heart attack directly due to my eating disorder, even though I still didn't have the stereotypical "look" of an eating disorder. Had I died, it would have been Dr. Dickstein's fault, because for years I believed that I did not have an eating disorder because a "doctor" told me so. I wouldn't recommend going near this doctor with a ten-foot pole. I sincerely hope that he has since educated himself on what eating disorders are, or refers these patients out.

Dr. Dickstein worked with me and diagnosed me with ADHD when I was a child. He was always considerate and worked with me until i was in 8th grade. He is a wonderful man and doctor.
