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. Patterson speaks to you a like an equal. She was never condescending, but was always encouraging. She is willing to spend extra time with you, if needed. She listened to me, and incorporated what I had to say into my treatment. She puts her patients needs first. She was absolutely instrumental in my recovery.
