Provider Reviews

….excellence in medical bedside manner the doctor was comforting, professional, and most informative throughout the testing procedure. Of those in the room, he exceeded the standards of a medical professional

Review for Dr. Sheehy

Terrible hospitalist at Kaiser Permanente in Sacramento. His rushed demeanor and flippant attitude makes it seem like he is forced to interact with patients nor does he believe his elderly patients. He refuses to speak with family caregivers.
