"Have been to many psychiatrists in my life time and most of them i didn't have a great deal of faith in. Dr. Slimmer however is outstanding. A very smart woman who is also compassionate and easy to get along with. I feel lucky to have had her there to help guide me through my mental illness over the years."

Dr. Slimmer is an excellent doctor and person. She has been very supportive and understanding. She listens and helps me see things from a fresh perspective. My life has changed for the better since going to see her. I'm eternally grateful.

She's way to quick to prescribe meds. She prescribed by ex-husband Klonopin but never diagnosed him as having borderline personality disorder. No med would have ever helped him. When he made suicide attempts, she never responded.

The "one & only" most "abusive/harassing/bullying" physician I ever had the "tragedy" of working/practicing with. Perfect example would be when she recklessly prescribed me different medications without so much as even augmenting me on them for so much as a week. Furthermore; she had also bullied me into providing my address to prescribe the highly addictive medication: Klonopin. Please; please trust my advice; save your time & money but do "not" ever see her: you can/will regret it.

Both my daughter and I have found Dr. Slimmer to be very knowledgable and helpful for 8 years now. She listens and is willing to try different meds and dosages. Highly recommend her!
