      Dr Sheehan was very professional, easy to talk to and I felt very comfortable. He spent a great amount of time with me and never did I feel rushed or that he was trying to wrap things up for his next patient, which exceeded my expectation.

      when they say" running behind" believe them. how do patients hold jobs when the have no idea how long the wait before your appointment! The sweet lady behind the desk said "welcome to mental health" when she told me he was running behind. Does ANYONE want to be welcomed to mental health!!! don't we all just want to be ok???? do they really care where your $100 comes from? will the worry about you after you are out of them? Nope! they just say they cant see you anymore. no individual care.
      He is almost always running behind but he always gives you all the time you need. You don't feel like he's rushing you. He's a great doctor

      Dr. Sheehan is a skilled, compassionate doctor. Recommended to me by a friend who is a physician. I live a distance, trip is very tiring, but worth the drive every visit. Dr. Sheehan's staff is pleasant & kind & returns calls promptly. Lobby wait time can be long, but you are never rushed out of his office when it is your time with him. Highly recommend.

      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. Sheehan says...

      I have 35 years of experience in treating patients with general psychiatric issues, and have special interest, training, and research experience in anxiety, panic, depression, bipolar disorders, ADHD and Addictions.

      I take my time to do a thorough evaluation, to come up with a workable plan with the patient to deal with the issues at hand. My practice is pretty full, and wait times for obtaining a new evaluation (over 1 hour) may take months. I am profocient with medications, having been involved in numerous pharmacotherapy trials with various medicines in various conditions as Investigator.

      I was born in Ireland into a medical family and graduated Med School at 23 yrs old. I completed 11 yrs of Post Grad training in Med/surg, Ob/Gyn, pediatrics, General Psychiatry residency and Child and adolescent psychiatry. I came to the USA to direct the Addictions program at USF psychiatry center in 1987,and was involved in clinical research and teaching  for 7 years before becoming Medical Director of Operation PAR the largest not-for-profit Addictions program in West Florida. I have been in private practice since then with the same psychiatrists and staff.

      I am double Board Certified in General Psychiatry and Addiction Psychiatry, and Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. I am listed in Best Doctors in the SE USA (elected by independent physicians).

      My brother is Dr David Sheehan, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry at USF, and acknowledged expert in Panic Disorder and Psychiatric Diagnosis. My wife Dr Mary Sheehan is also a psychiatrist, and is Medical Director of both GracePoint and PEMHS, the Psychiatric Crisis Centers for Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. I have a grandson and 4 adult Children and now have more time to spend on Photography as an enthusiastic practitioner.

      Dr. Sheehan's Care Philosophy

      I see each person as an individual functioning in his or her family and community. It is my role to help each person to function to his or her maximum potential. To that end, I perform a thorough assessment and identify the barriers that inhibit his or her optimal health. With diagnosis, treatment and ongoing monitoring, I endeavor to help maximize one's biological, psychological and social and spiritual potential.
