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 called Dr Nicholls office, reported a crisis situation, they accepted my daughter as a new patient. They had an intake appointment available within two days. After the half-hearted intake appointment our testing appointment was several weeks later. Our crisis had escalated in that time. The testing appointment was stopped short by the assistant. The re-schedule was more that five weeks later. By this time our crisis was in spiral. The office made no effort to help us beyond just charging me. When I called Dr Nicholls, he didn't ask how we were, he took no responsibility for their aloof attention to our needs, and he responded to me like an indignant child. Dr Nicholls should not be practicing. He is particularly incompetent with teens, and communicating professionally with adults. It appears the office tries to bury the bad reviews with obviously fake ones.

For the right amount of money, Christopher will say anything in a report. Do not use this man for anything family court related. He accepts bribes from the other party and will write what ever they want about your children in order to make an extra buck.
