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 wish I could give Dr. Landa 10 stars. As a patient and a healthcare provider myself, her integrity, patience, and compassion are apparent from not only direct interactions with her, but how much work she does behind the scenes. My guess, these negative reviews here may not be happy with any provider.... Because Dr. Landa sets the bar high.

I saw Dr. Landa some time ago and she was extremely dismissive, saying all my problems were from "sleep deprivation" and she would 100% not prescribe me anything until I fixed that. Other psychiatrists and psychologists I have seen were much more willing to discuss my anxiety and depression, which disturbed sleep is often a symptom of. I would strongly recommend avoiding her if you can. She was not kind.

She rushes visits, makes sweeping changes in meds without explaining side effects, and is a terrible listener. She filed my disability paperwork so badly my employer had to ask for a refile. When she gave me a copy of the refile another patient’s paperwork was mixed in. I’ve been seeing doctors for mental health for 20 years and she is the singularly worst doctor I have ever had.

This was by far worst evaluation of my life. Answer's to my questions (Not sure, I don't know, you may or may not have adhd) After three visits, Dr. Landa has not told me yes or no. The answers I got from her were you may have adhd, you maybe just hyperactive, sorry we could get to the bottom of this. Also, she called my mother with my consent but, that was bad Idea. My mother is so worried about me now. I just told Dr. Landa drop the evaluation. I don't want to be part of this.
