He cancels appointments constantly, even when he knows you are going through a crisis. He doesn't spend enough time: 15 minutes on average half of which is spent talking about medications. He is terrible in refilling medications.

An amazingly supportive doctor. The great thing is that Dr. Krimer is both a doctor/psychiatrist (who knows neuroscience & mental illnesses very well), can prescribe medications, & can also provides individual therapy. He explains brain function, psychiatric & medical conditions very well. Is also very good at providing feedback to your questions when appropriate. We have worked with a variety of different therapeutic techniques to treat my many disorders which have helped tremendously. 5 stars!

This man is absolutely horrible. He 302ed me after trying to get me to answer in the affirmative, despite the fact that I kept saying I had no suicidal ideation. He called my parent (I am 24 years old). Further more, he rode in the car with my folks and myself to the hospital which I found to be quite disturbing. He also claimed he'd never done it before, which spoke to his lack of proper judgement. Stay away! I don't understand the positive reviews. He's pure evil. Didn't bother to show up.
