In the title compound, C13H15F2NO, the piperidine ring adopts a chair conformation. The dihedral angle between the least-squares plane of the piperidine ring and the benzene ring is 48.75 (7)°. In the crystal structure, the molecules are connected via C-HO hydrogen bonds, forming a zigzag chain along the b axis.
