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.

This man saved my life! He doesnt shove you out after 15min. He takes time to listen, one of the few shrinks who truly cares about his patients.

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.

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.
