Not sure what to say?

Hard to believe it has been five years since Frank's passing. I thought I would mention something here that few know. Frank enabled me to earn my prescription license, which enabled me to be the FIRST Army Psychologist ever to prescribe medications in a combat Theater (Iraq). For this, I was awarded the Bronze Star Medal. As a result, the way was paved for veterans such as Bret Moore to prescribe, and now a civilian Psychologist and classmate, Dr. Larry Perroti, is also able to prescribe....

Well, Dr Minirth, I just quoted you in session yesterday as I have many many times working with my clients. Thank you for teaching any medication can do anything to anybody I admired how careful you were to start a medication low and slow and always discussed with your patients behavior changes eating healthy exercise and to seek counseling because medication was only a part of recovery. Thank you for teaching and mentoring when assisting you as you helped others. You were like the...

I just found out about the unfortunate passing of this wonderful man. He was there for me when I was going through the worst of depression and suicidal ideation in Texas. He had been my trusted doctor for years and I knew I was in good hands with him. I could remember him walking in the room during the worst of my times and I could tell that he cared for me. Thank you and rest in peace with Jesus our Savior.

His writings gave me comfort during a time of need.

I was a patient of Dr.Minirth for over 15 years. My mother and stepdad helped him with calls on his radio show from time to time. My mother passed away a year before Dr. Minirth and I was devastated over both losses. I have yet to meet another doctor to care for me the way he did. I miss him terribly. He was a TRUE caring man. Wish I could find another doc with a quarter of his kindness and understanding. I miss you Dr. Minirth, life is not the same without u.

Had the privilege of working under Doctor Minirth during the Minirth Meier New Life Clinic days. Although that experience was brief (2 years), I was always very impressed with his expertise in diagnosis and treatment of difficult cases. His no nonsense approach to client care and his undying sense of compassion for his patients and their families was instructional and inspiring...And of course that Arkansas accent was highly lovable. A brilliant man if there ever was one. I had a great deal...

Twins!

If only I could see Dr. Minirth. He was a man who spread respect and joy wherever he walked. He supported faith based missions in the lives of those he served and served with. That he lived was such a blessing to many who have confronted adversity.

I was shocked to hear of the passing of Dr. Minirth. He has been my Dr for a number of years. He was brilliant. Never had any other Dr as good as he was. Many patients and other lives will miss him greatly. May God bless all the Minirth family and may you be held in the loving arms of God.

I listened to Dr Minirith on the radio when I was going through a very difficult time in my life...His Christian view on everything he did was what drew me to listen to him everyday. I learned how to cope with my struggles from him. I loved his personality and sense of humor. I know he is truly blessed in Heaven, his Eternal home, for all he did to help others while he was on this earth.
