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 would never recommend Dr. Sharma or the facility he works at, Dover Behavioral Health. My 13 year old son was inpatient for 6 days at the facility, and Dr. Sharma was his psychiatrist. In those 6 days, the Dr. never contacted me despite my repeated requests. My son sat in that hospital for 6 days with no treatment. Then the staff left my son's private patient information accessible so that another patient was able to read it. That patient then proceeded to scream out in the day room the very private issues my son was having. This caused my son's symptoms to become worse than when he was admitted. I told the staff that I was coming to get him and they need to have him ready for discharge. That is when I was told that I can not just come and get my son. I reminded them that he is a voluntary patient and if they didn't discharge my son, I was calling the police. I reported the HIPPA violation to the hospital's patient advocate, and to date they have not attempted to contact me.
