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.

Did a really great job with my daughter. Was very knowledgeable and understanding. We wanted to do counseling sessions with my daughter with her and unfortunately she is all booked up until the middle of next year. I would recommend her. However, I would not recommend Dr. Durre whom I was referred to. In the first 15 mins she wanted a whole family counseling session, threatened me with dcf and insinuated I had family and marriage issues. "She sees this all the time". Just wow!

Dr. McDanal Has a great education background. However her own business Kindelan McDanal Associates has not been a good experience for me. Her office staff are not trained to carry out basic tasks in their job description. Her staff get scheduling mixed up & have a poor attitude when challenged to fix their own mistakes.. The testing environment is noisy due to an all open area. She is well educated but has an attitude like she is the most qualified Psychologist in Polk County & she knows best.

I can honestly say I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. She does not judge, she listens yet gives questions and insight to lead you to look at a different and healthy perspective. I have gone about 5 times and I have noticed such a growth and improvement. She is highly intelligent and is passionate about helping.

I find Dr. Mcdanal really listens to me but doesn't judge, no matter what outrageous things I tell her. After over 38 years in therapy, she was the one who finally figured out I am bi polar. Thank God for the few competent therapists we have working in Polk County! She is one of the best, and believe me, I have worked with many of the locals.
