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.

Terrible Experience
I guess I had a very different experience than everyone else. I see all these 5-star reviews, and I wonder if we saw the same person. The Dr. Cranford that I saw talked so much (at $190 an hour, mind you) that I could barely describe my issues. There were sessions where he talked more than I did. And when he talked, he loved to talk about himself. Based on his behavior, I wonder if he thought the sessions were about him, and not me. I suppose I could have asked, if he ever stopped talking. The last straw was when I was trying to talk about a difficult experience, and he cut me off so that he could talk about himself. Maybe you'll have better luck, it looks like some people did. For me, I just ended up paying a lot of money to listen to this guy stroke his own ego.

He is an amazing psychologist. After many trial and errors on other mental health professionals I came across him. He's great and I've been seeing him for quite a long time now. He is very caring and understanding. He listens to your problems and seeks to help you in any way possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help or wants change.

I am in the mental health field and about 4 years ago I brought my son to Dr. Cranford to see if he had Autism. As I suspected my son ended up having the diagnosis and Dr. Cranford was very kind and patient with me and my son. I appreciate that the doctor asked about my background and how my cultural values might impact the diagnosis, family reactions, and treatment approaches. He also provided advice on how to best get the school to provide services to my son who now is doing well.

I am forever grateful to Dr. Cranford for being willing to see beyond the hopelessness and frustration I was feeling as a parent-educator. He heard my cry for help when I worked to give other children the best education, while my son consistently failed, it's one thing when the child struggles in school, but the helplessness I felt as a parent could only be met by someone with a heart and mind to find a solution. Thanks Dr. C.
