    He's very quick to respond and helps with not only medicine but good behavioral strategies. He will listen to parents input and integrates parents ideas/plans into treatment. Very concise in visits if needed and easy to talk with via teleconference.

    Dr. Shain helped my teen son with terrible anxiety issues. He was extremely receptive to what we needed for 1.5 years. It is a very tricky process when you are dealing with medication and he was able to help us. He is a blessing and we are much better off because of his knowledge and care. We are forever grateful.

    Our family has been seeing dr. Shain for 22 years (twenty two). He is an extremely compassionate professional. Dr. Shain always takes the time to listen. Goes out of his way to accommodated our schedules. There where several times over the years when we had some urgent issues that required immediate attention and he made sure he would make the time to see us, even before crazy holiday schedules. Never had an issue and strongly recommend this highly professional specialist.

    Dr. Shain overprescribed medication to our family member and caused addiction issues. Did not listen to side effects. Was very rude and disrespectful. *Please notice how all of his new raving reviews are days apart in 2019 when the bad ones were years apart. Strange that so many patients suddenly recommend him that were seeing him for years! As another poster said, run don’t walk.

    Dr Shain has helped our family tremendously! He diagnosed my sons with ADHD and is treating one with the help of medication and one without. My younger son has overcome most of his anxiety with the tools he gave him and us to use with him. Dr Shain Takes the time to listen. He is well educated, empathetic, and uses great analogies. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for help with their children.

    Our family was in crisis mode, with our teenage son being diagnosed with Bi-Polar Mania. He required consistent outpatient therapy and medication monitoring. Dr. Shaine was our families saving grace. Extremely professional, knowledgable and also flexible with appt scheduling. His expertise in providing ways for my son to cope with day-to-day issues has allowed my son to be more grounded, focused, thoughtful and responsible. Today, our son is thriving and in a better place mentally then where he was 2 yrs ago. I would highly recommend Dr. Shaine to anyone in need of adolescent therapy care, Dr. Shaine's expertise will provide you with positive outcomes. We keep coming back!

    I started to see Dr. Shain for my daughter , pre teen, who wrote stories about suicide, not able to have or keep friends, not doing well In school, and he took a lot of time interviewing and testing myself and my daughter, and spent a lot of time explaining the tests and the options available. We have been seeing Dr. Shain for a few years, and I cannot recommend him enough to troubled young people. I am a Registered Nurse, and am knowledgeable about the help available for the community. Dr. Shain is not only an M.D. but offers MUCH experience as a Therapist, a father, and much experience in the acute hospital setting. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. SHAIN.

    He sees my son regularly. I have always found him to be very thorough, and pleasant. As well, he is very accommodating with scheduling, and I especially appreciate that when I was in urgent need for my son to be seen, he immediately responded and was willing to see him as a new patient. He has more than adequately addressed my son’s issues and I would definitely highly recommend him.

    Dr. Shain can be very unprofessional at times. He's made unnecessary sarcastic remarks when I requested less frequent appointments. I've seen him act in a rude and demanding manner towards his other patients. He rarely takes responsibility for his actions. Lacks empathy. Nasty man.
