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.

You really should have listened to us about our adult son. He needed help and you totally brushed us off. You thought you knew better, he’s been our son for almost 40 years. Thanks for nothing.

Deplorable, narcissistic human being. Absolutely no empathetic skills.

I was going to Dr. Rich for counseling. A few sessions in I felt his harsh criticism. He did not let up on me as he could see I was getting emotional. If you do not agree with him you will feel his wrath. I thought counseling was to build you up & point out what you need to work on. His style is not for everyone! I don't see how this style would help anyone become a better person. I walked out feeling completely humiliated & degraded. I would not recommend him to anyone. This was a horrific experience!

I have to say that I am absolutely shocked reading some of the positive reviews for Dr. Rich. The person I encountered in my first therapy session was so different from the helpful, empathetic therapist that I’m reading about. I can only surmise that a prerequisite for receiving useful treatment from Dr. Rich is that you agree with all of his opinions and experiences when it comes to politics, race, civil rights, reproduction, and religion. If you don’t, good luck. I went into this expecting unbiased guidance and instead got his opinionated, argumentative, and condescending perspective on everything. I am certain that I was dealing with a person who felt zero professional responsibility to behave compassionately towards me. It’s not my place to say whether or not Dr. Rich is a bad person, but he is definitely a bad therapist if he can’t deliver consistent care no matter the client’s background. Absolutely would NEVER recommend.

Got me in fast for my initial appointment. Staff is courteous and professional. Office is clean and easy to find. Mr. Rich is very thorough and using a protocol based approach to treatment. He was more than happy to reach out to my primary care physician and suggest medication regarding depression and send research materials to support his recommendations. I have never had such an involved approach before when in therapy, there was always a disconnect between my therapist and PCP.

Dr. Rich has had an incredible impact on my marriage. Within 6 months, we have taken significant steps towards the maturity and growth which leads to true happiness. My husband and I were at the brink of divorce, and it was through the guidance of Dr. Rich that we were able to identify the primary culprits for our own individual bad behaviors and formulate a plan of attack to address them. We have created better habits and are headed in the best direction possible. Highly highly highly recommend

Dr. Rich has done a great job helping my wife and I. I would highly recommend him for marriage counseling. He has brought my wife and I closer than we have been in a very long time.
