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.

Extremely disappointed in our couples session experience. Not only did the therapist keep us waiting in the lobby for over 30 minutes, but she immediately took sides after hearing a few minutes of discussion and became accusatory and demeaning. It also seemed like part of her style was just to speak slowly about completely irrelevant issues (like somehow my parents, who were never mentioned and had nothing to do with anything). She ultimately said she couldn't work with us (i.e., me).
