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 A. Is not the new type of psychiatrist who spends 10 minutes with you and gives you the same prescription to everyone. He gets to the root of the problem and actually spends time with you. There is no better psychiatrist in my humble opinion.

I have seen Dr. Anderson since 2001. He is the wisest man I have ever known. Further, he is one of the few Psychiatrists left who not only prescribe effective medications (brilliant psychopharmacologist) he does also does CBT. Dr. Anderson truly cares about his patients and he lives his mission as a Physician by standing behind the Hippocratic oath to "Do no harm." I am beyond blessed to have found him through a referral by a friend (this man does not need to advertise). He saved my life. SSL
