Brilliant! So incisive. She cuts through to the deep issues really quickly. She listens so well and "gets me" like no one else has ever done, despite the fact that I have seen multiple therapists over the years.

Going through hard times makes it difficult to trust anyone, but seeing Dr. Vollmer gave me peace of mind. She was thoughtful and kind, while at the same time posed challenging and stimulating questions. Her use of medications with me was judicial and helpful. I did not feel she was trying to be a pill mill, but rather I thought I had returned to the good ole days of a doctor who really worked at trying to listen to me.

Rarely do you find a doctor who listens well, shows deep empathy, while at the same time, challenging and stimulating new ways of coping with life's curve balls. Dr. Vollmer is that rare bird who combines these skills in a way which has helped me beyond what words can portray. Ordinarily, I would never write a review on the internet, but for Dr. Vollmer I felt compelled to sing her praises. She is attentive, responsible, reliable and intelligent. I am grateful to be under her care.

Dr. Vollmer has helped my child regain his self-esteem. She has seen him in ways which are beyond his symptoms and she was able to see his underlying issues which resulted in him developing more self-confidence. He no longer felt like the "odd kid". Our gratitude is beyond words.

Dr. Vollmer has been helping me become an independent adult. It has been a struggle for me, but she has been there for me in ways that I am so grateful and I wonder how I would have figured things out without her.

She saw our young child and she showed great understanding of her issues and she helped us understand our child in ways in which no other professional was able to help us. This has not only improved our daughter's mental state but she has helped our entire family thrive. We are grateful and we feel very lucky to have made it on her busy schedule.

My daughter was misdiagnosed by many previous psychiatrists. Dr. Vollmer nailed it and she helped us understand her better in a way that has changed our lives tremendously. Her cautious use of medication is much appreciated.

, dr Vollmar saw my young child years ago. She was expensive That wasn't what bothered me. What bothered me was she continued to see my child without any insight or treatment plan. My child had developed a sudden onset of tics. But after many disappointing encounters w her I decided to try a different doctor. Turns out my child had tics caused by strep. Antibiotics cured both. The diagnosis was PANDAS. Vollmar had missed it. My child is well now. Vollmar had nothing to do w recovery except it

Dr Vollmer did not even bother to see my daughters for the full hour and charged $650, then she wanted an additional $500 for 15 minutes to give a minimal followup. She was accusatory and shaming; I would never recommend her to anyone. Very disappointed; worst experience with a psychiatrist in over 30 years.
