What People Say About Dr. Nicholas Shea, MD

Dr. Shea is the best psychiatrist that I have ever worked with. Out of the all of the psychiatrists that I've ever worked with, he's the only one that actually takes a full session to check in on how you're doing. Other psychiatrists that I've worked with basically run a prescription mill, meaning you go in and go out in a matter of minutes and make you feel like you are wasting their time if you take more than a few minutes to do your check-in.

He is very friendly and professional - I found it extremely easy to open up to him about my ADHD. Unlike some other psychiatrists I have tried, he has a "if it isn't broken, don't fix it" kind of mentality that is honestly quite refreshing. That is, if you have been stable on your medications for awhile, he won't try to change everything. Only issue is scheduling - he is generally booked a month or two out. My advice: when you see him for an appointment, schedule the next one while you're there.

The doctor is nice, but too emotionally attached to patients. I sometime felt that I was the one providing care.

Although Dr. Shea is a caring person, his attachment to his patients is a bit too intense. I needed to terminate my sessions with him because of insurance reasons and his reaction made me very uncomfortable. After all, I had only had about 10 visits with him. I found his emotional neediness inappropriate.

We saw Dr Shea in his Winfield office and could not continue care with him when he moved his office to Chicago. He is an excellent Doctor, a good listener and is very compassionate.We would highly recommend him.

Excellent doctor on all accounts. Trust him entirely and directs his questions expertly. He's helps me answer and ask things I wasn't even aware of.
