Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Though it's mostly one-sided and sometimes plays like a commercial for the alternative medical community, "Doctored" makes a cogent case for real cooperation between Western medicine and less traditional protocols."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"When corporations and organizations put money before people - and they do - everyone should wake up and pay attention. Doctored is a thought-provoking call to arms on that front."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Bobby Sheehan doesn't just squander his objectivity, he drowns it out with bleating strings."
‑ Calum Marsh, Slant Magazine
"Mr. Sheehan seems to forget the primary documentarian directive: First, do no harm to your main argument."
‑ Daniel M. Gold, New York Times
"Doctored offers no fix for the problems it identifies, beyond a visit to your local chiropractor."
‑ Maria Garcia, Film Journal International
"Sheehan largely omits the voices of skeptics, resulting in a considerable-but possibly overdue-slant in favor of chiropractors."
‑ Chris Packham, Village Voice
"A hard-hitting attack on the medical establishment and the pharmaceutical industry's continuing attacks on alternative therapies."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
