Dr. Baxter is my Dr. and she's nice. I'm troubled by the articles telling how well she's gone from psychiatric patient to psychiatrist and how she listens intently as her patients tell of their problems. That isn't at all my experience. Dr. Baxter makes it clear she does NOT do talk therapy. You get a 15-minute appt. where you get prescriptions. If you do start talking, her eyes constantly dart from your face to the clock next to you. I've not improved after many years & am looking for a new Dr.

Dr Baxter is amazing. I have been seeing her since 2010 for treatment for BPII, Agoraphobia, PTSD and Anxiety. She is very knowledgeable in medications as we have tried many over the years to get to a good place 4 years ago and I have been healthy depression free for 4 years. She is amazing to talk to. My husband and I both go to my appointments and she looks forward to seeing both of us. With her having mental illness I feel very safe in her hands for my treatment. Her staff is GREAT!!

Dr Baxter is unique as she is actually Bi-Polar herself, which led to her pursuit of psychiatry. I have been seeing her for five years and she is always punctual and professional. You must remember that psychiatrists are primarily trained to administer drugs- not be therapists. She is excellent in her knowledge of drugs, but you will need a separate counselor or therapist in addition, or you will be disappointed. She also offers Saturday appointments, which is a major plus for me.

Dr Baxter is a very knowledgeable and compassionate physician. Any time I have needed her or had any questions, she has called me back directly, promptly, and THANKED me for calling! Dr. Baxter is ALWAYS on time and I have never had to wait to see her! This is VERY RARE in the medical setting! Dr. Baxter is the best Psychiatrist that my family or I have ever seen. She has a true gift as a skilled Psychiatrist. I highly recommend Dr. Baxter!

Dr. Baxter cancelled and rescheduled two appointments within two weeks. I went without medication for almost two weeks, even after having called and left all my information with the receptionist THREE TIMES. The pharmacy was unable to get it touch with her, and I suffered medically from being unable to reach the doctor to refill my script. Receptionist is INCOMPETENT AND UNACCEPTABLE. I work in healthcare, and was severely disappointed with this office.
