What People Say About Dr. Mark Shukhman, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had a pretty poor experience with Dr. Shukhman. This was my first time visiting a psychiatrist so I did not know what to expect, but Dr. Shukhman did not spend a lot of time listening to me and wrote me off as a "stressed out college student." Worst of all, he tried to make a joke after I described symptoms such as as suicidal ideation. I felt extremely uncomfortable and would not recommend Dr. Shukhman.

After a lifetime of seeing doctor after doctor for both physical and mental health issues and receiving no relief due to their cookie cutter approach to healthcare, I stumbled upon a paper written by Dr. Shukhman regarding the use of LDN for mental health issues. I live out of state, but his office was willing to set up a phone consultation. He called me on a SATURDAY, and spoke with me for over an hour. He is brilliant. He approached me as an individual and not just another number. Bless you.

Thanks to the honest, caring professional Dr. Shukman, I am alive and well. He helped to wean me off of the dangerous mind-altering meds, especially that wicked Klonopin prescribed to me by by a previous Psychiatrist who did NOT explain the risks involved and link to suicides. I had suffered the Akathisia so common to benzo usage and nearly ended my life because I could literally not sleep nor stop motor movements physically for weeks due to the non-disclosed effects of the benzos.

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!

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.

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!
