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.

My family has been seeing Dr. Shain for over three years and plan to continue doing so. He is knowledgeable and experienced, and we’re very happy with the care we have been receiving. I appreciate his candid comments and leading us to realistic assessments ignored what’s happening.

Dr Shain has been treating my son for almost a year now; on a weekly and every other week basis. Dr Shain has been very accommodating as far as scheduling. My son seems to approve of the sessions and works towards a goal. We would recommend Dr Shain. Thank you.

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 is one of the most helpful doctors I have ever seen. I started seeing him 2 months ago and since then I’ve seen so much progress on my mental health and physical. I would recommend Dr.Shain to anyone, he is non judge mental, informative, helpful, funny, and he truly cares and wants to help you.

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.

2. That letter was the first indication in all those years that he viewed me as the problem. BTW, my strong will and relentless personality served the advocacy of my son's mental health for years. Philip Shain is certainly my failure. BTW, a little more history: my boys were adopted at 1 and 5 YO from a foreign country, horribly malnourished, left on the side of a road. Both suffer from Reactive Attachment Disorder and a number of other conditions that were never mentioned by Shain.
