Dr. Shurman is a lifesaver. He's a great doctor, therapist and friend. He's also funny and easy to talk to. He has really helped me regain control of my life and gives me tips to optimize my health. I couldn't recommend someone more highly!

Probably the most unprofessional physician I have even come across.

I usually keep my opinions to myself, but if there is any way for me to offer a shortcut to someone else struggling with depression I am happy to share my story. It hasn't been easy but I have always been proactive in finding a way to support myself living a full life while having depression ? even armed with that tenacity -- it was extremely difficult to find a doctor that understood how to prescribe the right medication for me ? one that would support me and give me relief without cutting me

My experience with Dr. Shurman has been excellent -- a great therapist, excellent psychopharmacologist, and good guy. He is reachable in case of emergency, very responsive, and his office provides good customer service (unlike most doctor's offices). I can't recommend him highly enough.

This is one of the worst psychiatrists I have ever seen. He overcharges more than anyone I've ever worked with in the industry, he is pompous and arrogant, and he makes false assumptions without getting to know you. His assistant is also quite rude. Avoid like the plague if you care about your mental health.

I've been seeing Dr. Shurman for over 16 years and I credit him with helping me rise from a very dark place and be the healthy person I am today. He is always honest, professional, patient and trustworthy. I highly recommend him.
Shurman is a good guy, he really helped me out
