DO NOT seek treatment with this doctor. I am NOT a disgruntled former patient just one that was prescribed a mood stabilizer that I begged her to take me off of and she kept increasing the dosage. I ended up in a psychiatric ward in a suicidal condition, not a condition I had ever been in, but was brought on due to the medicine, at Evanston Hospital for 11-days while I was weaned off. Once things cleared up I was seen by a North Shore University psychiatrist, which I should have gone to all along, and she saved my life. She was very dismayed that I been put on and kept on a medicine that was clearly not good for me. That was in 2012 and I have been fully engaged in life and now work in healthcare. Please, do NOT seek treatment with this woman.

Dr Frankfurt nearly killed my wife. She prescribed her a medication that made her suicidal and then did not immediately take her off the medication. She then proceeded to treat the side effects of the offending medication (wild mood swings which my wife had never had before) rather than the anxiety and depression my wife sought help for. She also insulted us when we questioned her suspect methods. Avoid if you value your life, she simply doesn't care about patients.

Great doctor. Looks out for the best interest of her patients. Takes detailed notes every session about anything new that has changed. Very knowledgable of medications and interactions with overlapping disorders. If your a medication seeking patient, do not waste your time with this doctor she can seek that behavior out right away. If your unhappy with this doctor, your most likely a medication seeking patient jumping from doctor to doctor. So save her time for patients her truly appreciate her.
