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 was a patient of Dr. Brindley for almost 8 years, from the time I was released from in-patient. Dr. Brindley helped me understand my diagnosis and through a CBT approach helped me work through the underlying issues. I was a different person after our therapy. I find Dr. Brindley knowledgeable, pleasant, and caring. That's why I stayed with her for so long.

I work with mental health professionals in my position as a special educator, and having met penelope, I can say from experience, she is far too disrespectful, adversarial, and self-aggrandizing to be working in this profession. Should you have the displeasure of meeting Penelope, you will see what I mean.

If you're busy/have a crazy schedule, she is not the doctor for you, no flexibility whatsoever. She offered an appointment that was too soon to request off work and she told me "I treat plenty of military couples and a week is plenty of time to request off work." Well, Dr. Brindley, for your information, all units are different and they don't all adhere to the same rules. Not the most welcoming/empathetic/sympathetic person for this field.

Was referred to this person. I left a voice message that was not returned. i tried again a week later, explaining I had left a message prior and hoped she could get back to me. She called back immediately to admonish me for not realizing that she would not call back if she had no openings as her voice greeting said. It does not say that. When I told her so..she said it says it for "everyone else". I re-called just to check-Doesn't say it! nasty, unprofessional and probably a bit unhinged.
