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.

Never have felt comfortable about going to psychiatrists. But she changes it all. I feel totally at ease here. It is a very pleasant environment and she definitely is helping me more than anyone every has, by far! She actually cares about my condition and it shows she actually cares. I never experienced that before. Highly recommend !
