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 work with Sherif remotely and it has been incredibly helpful for my well-being. I always leave feeling very at ease and motivated. Because he is great at explaining things, I am able to understand concepts and apply them long after we talk and am able to extend that feeling of ease and motivation.

Dr. Zaher is very accommodating and worked wonders with my teenage daughter, who was way too cool to see a therapist BUT would see a Sports Psycholoist! We are very grateful that he is here for us.

Having tried out multiple other therapists, I would say Dr. Zaher is one of the best I have encountered. It is evident that he truly cares for the wellbeing of his patients. This is a man who puts his heart and soul into his job. He is typically very accessible; he will sometimes even pick up the phone past business hours. I do not know where I would be without his help and support. I am truly grateful for everything he has done for me.
