First off, it takes forever to actually reach someone in order to make an appointment. Second, it's practically impossible to schedule an appointment. Do not recommend.

Dr. Sheehan treats me like a person. Not just a patient—a whole person. He's a good listener, honest about what he thinks you need, understanding, knowledgeable and non-judgmental. He tells it to you straight; it's up to you whether you are willing and motivated enough to follow through. I'm very lucky to have Dr. Sheehan as a partner in my ongoing commitment and work toward a healthier, happier version of me. Cannot recommend him enough.

Tampa, FL – Jul 20, 2017
The doctors in this office don't authorize emotional support or service animals. When I first started going, the policy wasn't determined so it was disappointing, to me, to find out they don't. Dr. Sheehan is good at finding a medication that helps and the staff will schedule appointments anytime you need one. The TV plays health advertisements so it's difficult to read or converse. The wait time is generally long so I recommend listening to music or an audio book.

I've been under psychiatric care for 20 years. Prior to seeing Dr. Sheehan ten years ago, I never received any consistent long term relief from my symptoms. I attribute my mental stability and wellness for the past ten years to his expertise. He is attentive, genuine and caring. I highly recommend him.

Michael Jon in Palm Harbor, FL – Jan 28, 2017
He is very responsive and complete. Always makes me feel comfortable. I have made great progress since seeing him. He can sometimes run very, very, very behind but rest assured it is ecause someone needed him and he made sure to give them complete care which is exactly what he does when YOU need him. It made be inconvenient but i just plan ahead because he is worth it. I drive an hour just to see him. He is well worth it.

Definitely 5 stars. I have been a patient since 2001. He takes the time to sincerely listen and help give the advice and answers you NEED to hear, not what you may want to hear. He is a straight shooter which I truly appreciate. I Highly recommend Dr. Michael Sheehan.

Dr. Sheehan is an excellent psychiatrist. He does not rush you in and out on follow up visits but instead listens carefully to you. His responses are considered and thoughtful, and he is very insightful. He is also kind and compassionate. I am very happy that he is my doctor. I am doing better now than I have in years under his care.

Dr Sheehan takes the time to look at everything that is going on with the patient and will make adjustments to scheduling as well as medicines as needed. I was referred to him as one of the most knowledgeable doctors in this area who knew how to find the right combinations of medications to get the best results as quickly as possible.

Em in St Petersburg, FL – Aug 12, 2016
Dr. Sheehan is an amazing doctor. Though the wait time can be extensive, it is well worth the wait. Dr. Sheehan spends as much time as needed to discuss my issues, short-term solutions and long term treatment goals. I was apprehensive about seeing a doctor, but he is gentle while being straight forward. He is engaging, provides insight and incorporates my opinion in his treatment plan. I am not sure where I would be without Dr. Sheehan.

Todd Jenkins in Tampa, FL – Jun 10, 2016
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.
