Amazing. Smart carong, reasonable if u want to get well shes in your corner 100%. She cant do the work to be well fir you she can only set u on the right path. Thsts why her bad grades are unfair i believe. She can only prescribe and listen not do magic solutions . She listens and cares. What a dr should do. She kind and wants the best fir her patients.

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.

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.
