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 feel that Ms. Israel helped lead us in the direction that we were both thinking but were not able to communicate properly to each other. She was neutral in her position regarding the two of us, but was interested in hearing both feelings/opinions. I would recommend her.

Terrible!
She made me go through 12 pages of documents, I had to go to UPS to print and scan them, that cost me 10 dollars. After I had some questions about where I need to put a certain number she than emailed me saying she is not interested in me being her client. I wasted 10 dollars. ANd the only thing I did was email for some more help on filling out all the information she wanted. Terrible service, do not go to this doctor.

Frona is understanding and I found her very helpful in providing tools to assist in managing conflict. Working with her is a positive experience. Her suggestions are insightful and her observations helped to clarify the best path forward. Frona is reliable and very accessible which is extremely important in difficult times.

She had great reviews and she didn't disappoint. Very understanding, a wealth of experience and personally understands the issues you're going through. Within a few months my wife and I have gone from daily fights and arguing to now listening and understanding each other. We couldn't have done this without her help. I thank Frona for helping us during this hard time and allowing us to have a great relationship for years to come.

Never had Visit as she reached out for my patient forms but openly cc'd myself and another patient exposing my email and potentially personal information to a complete stranger. I cannot seek to have therapy with her nor can I recommend that anyone else sees her as the damage to being outed publicly is just a matter of time because of this behavior that someone could be harmed if any patient information is shared because of that practice.

She was very rude and turned me away because she assumed she wouldn't be able to help me. Once I explained to her that the type of therapy I was looking for was something that she could help me with, she told me she just didn't want to work with me. I wish she had been more professional.

She is unprofessional, rude and only cares about the payment. She had the nerve to argue about someone else's payment on the phone during my session.

Ms. Israel is very professional, helpful,motivating and understanding. She listens and provides resources to help me. Ms. Israel has been a lifesaver and my light at the end of a dark tunnel. I highly recommend her if you are in need of therapy or someone to help with your condition. Ms. Israel, goes above and beyond and her passion for her work shows. She makes me feel like there's hope and it feels comforting knowing someone cares.

Don’t trust these positive reviews! It was the worst 45 min, totally unprofessional, judgmental, rude and all she cared was a payment. Took me a few days to recover from this visit. Never again!

I came to see therapist Frona Israel for bereavement counseling as well as for a family crisis I was facing at the same time. She was understanding, a great listener, and she was very helpful in getting me through that particular difficult time. She is very knowledgeable in her specialty and I would highly recommend her.

Frona really helped me understand how to stand up for myself and the importance of putting my foot down in certain family situations. She taught me how to put my needs first and how to see things in a way I never saw before without feeling bad about it. She is tough but her approach really pushed me to see a side of myself I didn't know I could follow through with and I truly felt better after.
