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.

This 'Doctor' and her Office Staff are the Very Worst in my experience of Health Care Providers. Her Care is inattentive and unfocused, her staff = incompetence to the highest Degree. She will get paid by Dignity, but she has absolutely None. When you've been injured by her, file a complaint. Maybe one day it will make a difference for others we can save.

Excellent psychiatrist who listens and really gets to the heart of the issue. She is compassionate but also firm. And she focuses on improvement, rather than reactive treatment. I’ve had a number psychiatrists through the years and she has been the best.

She listens and her demeanor is calm and friendly. For me, she was like a breath of fresh air, having been very disappointed by the care I was given by my previous psychiatrist? She is knowledgeable and professional.
