Patient Comments (38)
Doctor Schopick is a very caring man. I have been with him for around ten years now and he has helped me so much. I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for his help. He treats me for multiple different mental health issues and does a fantastic job at it. I couldn't have picked a better psychiatrist to treat me. I have one hundred percent trust and confidence in this man and thank him for all that he's done for me. Plus he has a cute cat! He is funny and compassionate as well. I can't thank
Newmarket, NH |
Extremely professional and consistent. I always feel like my thoughts and concerns are listened to and made a priority. I highly recommend.

I have been seeing Dr. Schopick for about two years now. I can honestly say, that although it was a tough road for me in the early going (continued bad decisions/judgment) - that now I am really beginning to feel well again, and can clearly see the benefits of his treatment plan(s). Dr. Schopick is very attentive to my challenges; has a very caring nature; and has a good sense of humor to boot! I am very happy with the care and treatment I have received, and would highly recommend him.
Hampton, NH |
I've been seeing Dr. Schopick for nearly 5 years and would recommend him unconditionally.
in Newton, NH |
I have always been very cynical about psychiatrists. I have had terrible anxiety / depression for most of my life and have not had good experiences with doctors in the past. Not until about a year ago after meeting and being treated by Dr. Schopick has my outlook changed. He has dramatically changed my life. He is patient and listens. He is also very kind and can be funny. He has a way of keeping you at ease and making you feel positive about what is to come. I love his cat Ziggy too!
Exeter, NH |
Dr Schopick is extremely helpful and caring
Portsmouth, NH |
Thanks to Dr S I can sleep again and anxiety is under control. He is thoughtful and caring. It was a relief to find a Dr with a sense of humor. He listens and is willing to try new approaches. Can't recommend him enough.
in Portsmouth, NH |
Very forward thinking. Really cares about his patients and has their best interests in mind. He is a understanding doctor, easy to talk with and takes an interest in your treatment in a way I have not encountered before.
Burtonsville, MD |
I have been seeing Dr Schopick for a few years. It took me years to work up the courage to seek treatment, I found that Dr Schopick's dry sense of humor (not about treatment or anything important) makes appointments more comfortable. He's helped me a lot and many things in my life are improved as a result of seeing him. He has a lot of good advice on general health things also.
in Lee, NH |
Dr. Schopick has been part of my daughter's treatment team for treatment resistant depression and anxiety for a little over 2 years now. His patience and ability to take a holistic approach to helping her with her issues are the main reasons for this 5-star rating. He is always open to approaching problems from a new direction. HIs office assistant Vicki is wonderful anytime we call or email. I would recommend Dr. Schopick to anyone seeking help.
in Portsmouth, NH |
I have been seeing Dr. Schopick for several years. He listens to me and he is always thinking outside the box. Vicki who is his right hand person is incredible. She always gets right back to me and does a great job fighting the insurance companies! I read the one star review and all I can say is they must have seen a different doctor. I would take a bullet for Dr. Schopick!
Union City, NJ |
I had been dealing with many issues that been negatively effecting my life for many, many years. Once I had built the fortitude to follow through with acceptance and positive change, Dr. Schopick was nothing short of the Medical Professional I had hoped for. His compassion, effectiveness, and safe approach has allowed me to improve so many aspects of my life I did not realize needed improvement. He is very dedicated to his patients. Thank you Doc!
in Dover |
I had been encouraged for much of my life by family, teachers, etc. to be tested for ADHD. Stubbornly (and offended) I ignored them and continued to struggle academically, professionally and in my day to day. I finally accepted that it was really interfering with my life reluctantly scheduled my an appointment. Dr. Schopick removed the stigma and helped me realize that life could be more manageable and that sometimes we need a little help to reach our potential. Cannot thank him enough.

When our teenager was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder, we needed a psychiatrist to be able to handle the medication management portion of the treatment plan. Dr. Schopick has certainly proven to be a vital and integral part of this plan, as he has managed to bring our child back into a place where functioning within the realm of daily life has become a reality. Dedicated and surprisingly intuitive, he is able to perceive, and draw out emotions that would otherwise be kept hidden.
in Portsmouth, NH |
I've had serious adhd symptoms my whole life, but had never talked to a professional. At 30 yrs old, I was very hesitant to talk to get help, but finally decided I wanted to see if there was something that could improve my quality of life. Dr. Schopick was receptive, intelligent, and genuinely wanted to help. I felt he was easy to talk to, had real insight, and a straightforward, logical approach to therapy and improving mental health. I'm very happy I decided to see him.
New York, NY |
Dr. Schopick is an excellent doctor. I have been seeing him for at least 3 years now and feel very much in control of my mental health now and Dr. S has a lot to do with this. He's learned my behavioral patterns and knows when and how to treat me in "crisis mode" and then how to get back into "maintenance mode." He is incredibly knowledgeable about the medications he prescribes and what they do to your body. His office is quiet, comfortable and relaxing. I would highly recommend him.
North Hampton, NH |
In my family's experience, Dr. Schopick has shown himself a sensitive and effective therapist for my teenage granddaughter (her uncle and I are guardians). He recently very carefully calibrated a new medication regimen that has improved our her quality of life, and that has been felt in our home-life, as well. On top of this, we were able to get in touch with the doctor during a holiday weekend; being able to speak to the doctor about a new medication on a holiday was a relief!

Dr. Schopick has been a life saver for me. I have treatment resistant depression and anxiety. He has been seeing me for many years and has been there through it all. He is professional and up to date on the numerous medications and is also very humorous. I never feel rushed when seeing him and he is a great support to me.
Portsmouth, NH |
Dr. Schopick has taken a holistic approach to my treatment over the past year. He is the FIRST psychiatrist I have seen in my lifetime (20+ years of mental health treatment) who actually had a plan to get me off of medications. He was also the first provider to suggest alternative solutions - natural supplements, exercise, etc. - for my treatment instead of just pushing pharmaceuticals. He genuinely cares for his patients and wants them to improve their lives.
in Exeter, NH |
Dr. Schopick is an excellent doctor. I went to him after another doctor had gotten me addicted to pain killers. I did some research and found Dr. Schopick. He was excellent. He got me right in and help me every step of the way. He helped me slowly get off of the pain meds and get my normal life back. He never made me feel uncomfortable or bad about my situation. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who needs help in any facet of their lives.
Atkinson, NH |
My experience with Dr, Schopick has been very positive. He is very kind, knowledgeable and most importantly helpful. His office is comfortable and conveniently located. I have never felt rushed through and appointment. I highly recommend him.
New Hampshire |
Dr. Schopick has helped me turn my life around. I've been seeing him for almost three years and he's fantastic. He not only listens with empathy, but he always discusses alternatives to my treatment, gives me plenty of options, and takes an active interest in my well being. I feel comfortable that I could call him in an emergency and he would help me. And his office admin Vicki is amazing- she's friendly and is always helpful and very quick to respond if I have a question or concern.
Newmarket, NH |
Schopick lacks compassion and empathy. I can't imagine anyone feeling trust and care with this man. Seek help elsewhere and read other reviews about his bedside manner and about his incident several years ago.
Eindhoven, NB |
I experienced a lot of trauma and losses in my life. I was depressed and having panic attacks. Dr. Schopick added Prozac which brought my symptoms under control. As soon as we saw improvement, he started to taper me off other medications. I feel a lot better and it’s great to be on fewer meds. He has explained that after I've been stable for awhile, we can eventually try to taper off all meds. Very good rapport. He's courteous and respectful. Recommend him highly.
New Durham, NH |
Dr. Schopick and his staff are extremely flexible in both scheduling and in finding a treatment option that fits the individual best. He encourages questions that the patient may have concerning medication and or treatment. I have had an excellent experience working with Dr. Schopick and I would most certainly recommend him to family and friends.
Portsmouth, NH |
Dr. Shopick is an excellent Physician. He is caring and insightful. I would highly recommend him.
Stratham, NH |
I have personally found Dr Schopick to be a wonderful caring doctor who has helped me immensely. I would recommend Dr Schopick to anyone I know. I enjoy his company, and I always leave feeling better. He's a good man, and a great Doctor.
Portsmouth, NH |
Very smart doctor who really listened to me and made me laugh a little with his dry humor. Would recommend him and liked his office manager a lot.
in South Paris, ME |
Dr Schopick offers a kind but yet sometimes abrasive approach. His kindness becomes shattered when dishonesty arises. Dr Schopick delivers a great deal of respect for his client,listens intently analyzes carefully and administers key feelings on designing ideas to remedy personal issues. Dr Schopick over time has brought through patience and outsourcing techniques and other counseling tremendous results. However it takes hard work from both parties. I thank Dr Schopick from my deep in my heart.
Dr. Schopick treated me and helped a lot with my depression and anxiety after I had tried some other medications that did not work somewhere else.
Maine |
Used him when my son was in 4th grade. All he did was keep increasing medication that was making my son violent. Finally, went to a specialist in Boston paying $2,000 out of my pocket and the specialist put him on generic Anafranil and within one week my son was 100% improved and a fun, happy child. His has OCD which caused major anxiety and inability to function. Scholpick was terrible.
Greenland, NH |
Was not impressed with this doctor at all. Unwilling to do any work to look into any other additional or of different diagnosis, medications or treatments. Loves to push the Prozac and quickly dismisses any request to discuss or try other options. Wait time is always long as well.
Rochester, NH |
Unlike other reviewers, I actually really liked working with him and only left because my insurance changed. There were some issues with him tracking financing and occasionally getting confused on my copay, but it's a very small self-run office and if he wants to get paid, he needs to be diligent. You have to understand that. I understand other reviewers saying that he seems pompous but I found him quite fun and funny, and sometimes sarcastic (not about anything serious) and I loved it.
in Rochester, NH |
Spoke with Dr. Schopick a few months back, was told that he was not sure he could take on the "complexity" of my 11 year old daughter (with ODD/ADHD/[possible]Bipolar) case". Because of this response, we choose not to pursue him further. Unfortunately, we were forced to call him back when we started realizing that we could not get psychiatric care for a child here in NH (just moved here from NC). His receptionist informed us that their records show us as having missed an appointment! What? When?
in New Hampshire |
I saw him for 14 years. He was good at pushing medications but was more concerned about financial payment. I had insurance and never once missed a check. In fact he owed my family money for overcharging which they received. He however did not help me, was more concerned in just appearing to be helpful. However, be hopeful there are psychiatrists out there who do help and have saved lifes, never give up, best thing you can do is find a doctor who listens and cares!!
in Somersworth, NH |
Dr. Schopick intimated me every time I walked into his office. When I told him about an issue I was having with my current meds he added yet another medication. When I finally sought help with another provider I was asked why he give me a third med instead of increasing the dosage - I replied I don't know, he was my doctor, what choice did I have but to trust him? He is patronizing & pompous & not compassionate at all! (as another feedback review said) I would not recommend Dr.Schopick.
Peabody, MA |
Dr Schopick doesn't seem to care about what is BEST for his patient. He makes an initial assessment of a person and takes NOTHING else into account (this was over the course of a year of treatment). Seeing his pt 1x a month, and not even bothering to communicate with other providers that had input in care. He is pompous and patronizing. I have been seeking alternate providers and can't wait until he is no longer a part of treatment!
Portsmouth, NH |
He was the single most disrespectful provider that I have even been to see. He lacked in professionalism and compassion.
