Deborah has literally given me my life back. After over 40 years of suffering from panic attacks ....depression sleep paralysis and a host of therapists ...doctors..and neurologists ignoring me....I found Deb I haven't felt this well most of my life. She is caring and really listens to what is going on. I can't thank Debra enough.........I plan to continue to work with her indefinitely. If you have been given the run around like I have please give Deb a call...you won't be sorry.

I met Deborah Drumm in 2003 when I was 23 and going through suicidal thoughts. Through the 14+ Years Deborah has been there for me, has never acted judgmental even when my thoughts where kinda out there. I've never felt safe with anyone to tell my darkest feelings/thoughts to and all the trauma I've been put through. But with Deborah I have never held anything back. I'm forever grateful and blessed to have met her I believe it's no coincidence but fate. She has helped me stabilize myself and live a healthy life. I'm far from perfect but manageable and happy...a word I never knew how it felt till now. I remember when I first met her she asked me how long have u ever been happy for? I couldn't answer so I said 5 mins lol she was like you've never been happy longer then 5 mins? I really hadn't! Now I am! Thank you Deborah Drumm love u!!!

Hi Deborah, Great News!!!!!!! As of Friday morning- it's as if somebody turned the anxiety/stress switch in my head to the OFF position. I've been taking the 1 tab of Latuda 2X each day as you directed (early AM and PM a supper) and the Xanax 1mg (early AM and PM at bedtime). I didn't even need to take a Xanax at midday since Thursday because my mind just doesn't go to the "anxiety place" any more. As of Friday there has been NO or maybe very extremely low anxiety! It's as if it were never an issue! My mind doesn't even seem to go there when it's not preoccupied with something else! I am just so thankful!!!!! I don't know which med did the trick but I'll forever be thankful to you that it's working very well. I certainly don't want "it" to come back but at your advice should I back off or stop taking the Xanax or should I just keep taking it for a while longer. Again, please advise. Don't worry, I'll keep taking the meds if you advise it. Again, I don't need a recurrence of these most horrible few weeks!!! AND, THANKS SO VERY MUCH!!!!!!!! You could never know how much this has helped me be normally happy again and to live my life like a normal human being. The things that were bothering me and were sitting "like a monkey on my shoulder" have disappeared!!! Again, thanks very much!! I'm feeling like a normal person again and there are smiles and happy times again and most important of all there are no periods of waking up at 2am or 4am, etc. dwelling on the anxiety and imagined problems that haunt me horribly!!! I don't know how to thank you! I'll say it again! THANKS SO MUCH!!!!

I was introduced to Deborah some years ago to take over monitoring my medications. The care Deborah gave me was the best I had received in years. Deborah spent the time with me that I needed and she always responded very quickly when I contacted her by phone or email. It was a challenge to get me stable on medications, but Deborah managed to do it. Medication is not everything though; Deborah also asked me about things in my life that were important to me. She really listened and I always felt comfortable with her. She was very compassionate and knew how to help me deal with my life struggles. Her office gives the atmosphere of peace and serenity with aromas to stimulate the senses. When I started seeing Deborah I did not have that peace and serenity, however, in the time we worked together, Deborah gave me a fighting chance for it. Thank you, Deborah, for the peace and serenity that are part of my life now. Also, Deborah’s office manager, Norie, is super nice and I always felt like she cared about me too. She helped me more than she probably knows.

It had been a week of suffering from anxiety and panic attacks without telling anyone. I was trying to deal with it on my own. After a week, I couldn't handle it anymore and I was so scared!! Deborah agreed to meet with me when she usually does not have office hours, which I was so grateful for becuase I needed help and she was there for me. When I met with Deborah she could tell I was scared. She listened to me and assured me I was going to be ok. The first few weeks were rough for me because I had never been on any medication before. Deborah was always there for me though anytime I had a question or concern(no matter how small). She alwaysed return calls or emails very timely which was so very helpful. She said something that has always stuck with me, "You are going to get your life back." Which was something that I didn't believe when I sat in her office that first week. But, now after 5 short months I do have my life back! Through medication, therapy and relaxation techniques I have learned how to control my anxiety and have become a much more patient Mommy as well :) I cannot thank Deborah enough for all of her support, guidance and knowledge. Deborah is truly amazing!!!

I met Dr. Drumm while I was still living in the tri-state area back between 2006-2008. I won´t bore you with the grueling details of my struggle, but I will say this: I met Dr. Drumm during a self-inflicted downward spiral I was on, with no one to blame for my bad luck other than myself. Dr. Drumm provided me with empathetic care, realistic perspective, and long-lasting lessons that I learned on my own with the help of her guidance. I moved away without notice, and intermittently contacted her with updates. It is now 2013 and I´m living in Dallas, Texas, where I have made leaps of progress in the success and happiness of my life, without the use of any medications or therapy. I recently contacted Dr. Drumm again to let her know how influential she has been in my life, even after not having seen her since 2008. This is what I wrote to her: On Thu July 4 2013, Megan Rimli wrote: Dr. Drumm, I owe so much to you for the care you provided to me while I was your patient. Thank you for being such a positive and long-lasting force within my life. With each day that goes by, I continue to strive for excellence in my healthy lifestyle as well as success in my endeavors using the advice and skills you taught me. Thank you, Megan R.

I have seen Deborah Drumm for the last two years. Prior to my first appointment with her, I was carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders. I would spend days in bed with no motivation or ambition to get up and live my life. My world had gone black, and the only thing I knew was how to be miserable. I had been seeing a therapist for several years, and I had attempted to see psychiatrists but always felt as if the money & time was more important than helping me to get better. Though I was skeptical about trying another doctor, it turned out to be a monumental life-changing event for me. Deborah spent much time (without glancing at her watch for the hour to pass by) getting to know who I was. I could tell by her responses and her body language how much she wanted to help me. After assessing all of my emotional turmoil, we came to a joint conclusion on what medications I should be taking. To my surprise, within a few weeks I was feeling like a brand new person. I was no longer using my bed as my refugee, I was happier and most importantly, my ambitions and self-worth started to creep back into my body. I could finally breathe again (metaphorically speaking). I became more social, and was able to finally live a life that I had so desperately been seeking. Without the help of Deborah Drumm & her practice, I have trouble imagining what could have happened. She turned a scared, sad girl into a happy & fearless woman. Although I still have work to do on myself, I am finally looking forward to the future instead of constantly dwelling on the past.

I can't say enough about Deborah Drumm. I started seeing her after my doctor passed away suddenly. She understands medication can be important but she also knows it isn't the only answer. She listens, consults and most of all CARES!

After years of struggling and bouncing around between various mental health practitioners, I finally met Deborah. She was the first to take a personal interest in my well-being and helped me get the care I needed. I am recovering and on the way to a better life and a new me all thanks to her. I will be forever grateful for her help and highly recommend anyone considering it to seek out her services. Thank you!!!!

I was referred to Deborah several years ago by a friend. I had been to many doctors over the years and wasn't getting any better. After and hour and a half with Deborah, I had a diagnosis and meds that would get me to a good place. I have never felt better and I atribute that to Deborah and the level of care she provides. She has gone out of her way to help me over the years. I have referred several family members and friends to Deborah and they all love her! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a caring individual to help them. She has been nothing short of amazing for me these years and I can never say Thank you enough to prove that.

I can't begin to tell you what Deborah means to me, after 17 years of dealing with doctors who either didn't no what they were doing or just didn't care my therapist gave me Deborah's number. From the second I walked in her office I felt like I had a chance at getting better, I had given up hope. Deborah is a not only smart but so kind and caring. All I can say if all the doctors were just half as good as Deborah we would be very very lucky.

I was asked to contact Deborah by my regular doctor. I'm a 53 year old man that went through a traumatic situation in December of 2009. By my 3rd visit with Deborah she had changed my life drastically. My wife says it's like night and day. As someone mentioned previously she is a God send. I feel very fortunate to have met her. I have never felt so much at ease as I do with her. Her knowledge and personality are terrific and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a compassionate professional to help them and to work with them. Thank you Deborah, you're the best!

Doing good,the marriage counseling has done so much for us.We are able to draw the line where the children are concerned. Dan has changed more then I ever expected,for the better. Deb got him to admit to a lot of stuff he would never have told me. Both of you have saved our marriage. Can't begin to tell you how grateful I am for that. We are finally getting some peace in our family.Hope to see you soon.

Deborah has been a god sent to me.I am so thankful I was referred to her,she put me on the right track to where I can finally say I have a life now. She knows her stuff!

Several years ago I had a need for counseling and Deborah was referred to me by my personal physician. She quickly and methodically helped me through my need at that time and continues to do so as situations arise that make me want her opinions and assistance. She has never failed me. Deborah possesses qualities of professional and personal capabilities that are excellent and has been a tremendous help to me to this day. I am completely at ease in her company, she has a keen ability to make you feel comfortable in her presence and a gift of being able to help those in need of her care and guidance. Without exception, when I have placed a call to Deborah, she returns the call promptly. Behind a most beautiful smile is a woman filled with compassion, years of education and experience in her field. She is constantly attending workshops, etc. to enhance her already expansive professional knowledge. I consider it a privilege to recommend Deborah to anyone in need of her assistance. Being with Deborah is being in a very peaceful place. I am very fortunate to have her in my life. And, the best part of Deborah, is that she loves what she does with passion.
