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.

Was an excellent Doctor who cared for and helped me with my problems. Very professional. Was recommended as a top neuropsychologist and provided even better services than expected. She spent all the time required to explain a very complex condition and was very compassionate. Honestly best doctor I've gone to.

A 2 day test was done to overturn a diagnosis by someone else. She stated that she is the best and her testing is best. Stating wrong facts and deliberately omitting other facts in he report to overturn a diagnosis and not really getting a new one. Ended up with a highly subjective report without a real diagnosis and lacking treatment path.
