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 use to be so afraid of being sick and dying that I didn't leave my room for years literally. I almost didn't go to my first appointment because I was so scared to leave my house. But Dr. Chik (I think she goes by Dr. Plinovich now) taught me a lot about OCD and exposure and doing things even though I'm in pain and uncomfortable. I now have my own place and have a life! Exposure therapy literally saved my life.
