      Truly outstanding. I have been to several of the highest rated psychiatric care institutions in this country, yet have never made as much progress as I have with Dr. Shukhman. His knowledge of psychopharmacology is unparalleled. His persistence and encouragement have helped me turn my life around!
      in Chicago, IL |
      The most dedicated and effective psychiatrist I've seen. He sticks with you and keeps trying medications until he finds the ones that work. Very knowledgeable and not afraid to try different approaches until he is able to bring you relief.

      in Elk Grove Village, IL |
      I have been a patient of Dr. Shukhman for several years. He has always been a very caring and concerned doctor. He is very knowledgeable about any questions I have about the latest trends in Psychiatry. The doctor is always on time for my appointments and ready to listen. He has a great sense of humor and seems to be such a kind person. I have witnessed Dr's patients exiting his office with him, laughing and smiling. It's obvious he has a great relationship with his patients. HE'S A GREAT DR!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Shukhman's Care Philosophy

      My patients - as long as it is reasonable - are the ultimate decision makers. My role is to offer choices, to inform about the standards of care and - if needed - to offer steps beyond these standards.

      My prescriptions often combine medications with vitamins, supplements and herbs.

      In treatment, we will focus not only on anxiety, mood or addictions, but also on sleep, hormones, sex, appetite, weight, energy level, inflammation etc as they frequently are at the root of the problem. The best treatment should be comprehensive.

      Dr. Shukhman says...

      experience in using supplements, vitamins and herbs alone or in combination with medications

      mood and anxiety disorders:

      expertise in using novel medications, augmentation strategies and

      treatment of chronic pain with buprenorphine (Suboxone etc).

      Treatment of post opioid withdrawal syndrome (POWS)

      outpatient pharmacotherapy for alcoholism, addiction to benzodiazepines

      experience with such medications as Suboxone, Zubsolv, Bunavail, Vivitrol, Xyrem, MAOI, LDN - on international experts panel), compounding medications

      Dr. Shukhman says...

      treatment of mood and anxiety disorders: "second opinion" clinic; treatment of "medication-naïve" and treatment resistant cases.

      treatment of chronic pain syndrome with buprenorphine and supportive medications;

      in-office induction and detoxification. Treatment of POWS:

      most of my patients had no history of addiction before they were introduced to pain medications after a trauma or a surgery. After while, they realized they cannot stop the medication ... If you are one of them, you know the rest of the story. I almost never had to hospitalize my patients for detox - it can be comfortably done at your home with the instructions provided and guidance from the nurse available to lead you through the process. After narcotics are stopped, patients usually experience prolonged post opioid withdrawal syndrome (POWS). With the help of additional medications, we can expedite recovery.

      other addictions: alcohol, benzodiazepines

      "process addictions": food, sex, Internet
