RUN FOR YOUR LIFE

Makes you dependent by over medicating making you even crazier then when you initially first started seeing her. Had me on 30 pills a day. Ruined years of my life until I woke up. I’m not on any medication and it’s been six years. I’ve been to other doctors and they’ve told me that I’m not what she diagnosed me with.

Silver Hill Hospital

I ended up at Silver Hill in New Canaan June9th,2017. And I was lucky enough to be a patient of Dr. Shander. In my lifetime I've seen a lot of "shrinks" and she BY FAR was the best ever. Compassionate, Competent and very understanding of all my health issues both mental and physical. The care I received from her will stay with me forever. I currently and for the last 12yrs have been treated at Bridges in Milford, Ct. and I intend to find a way to become an out patient of Dr. Shander.

AVOID THIS DR. SHANDER

Had minor post pardom and was sent to this Dr. I spent the next four years of my life in a bed unable to function in day to day life. She had my entire family brainwashed into believing how much I needed her. Yes she does go above and beyond any regular dr. I. Relieve what she does is illegal. Texting in the middle of the night. Speaking with family members against wishes (hippa). She had me on 8 psychotropic drugs at once. I had Dr. induced manic depression. I was naive, I really thought people went into the medical field to help people. This Dr. is a very sick person. One of her patients even hung themselves at silver hill. I suggest if you are under her care to GET OUT IMMEDIATELY. Run for your life. Her intentions are not to make you feel better but for you to be completely dependent on her.

One Star

She is more concerned about herself than her patients. Gives advice, not therapy.
