Best Psychiatric Care
I highly recommend Values Based Psychiatry. Not only did Sara treat me with empathy and compassion, but she has by far been the best psychiatry provider. I was finally diagnosed correctly, and I am thriving under her care.

Amazing care
We have been using Sara for several years now and and she's absolutely amazing. Directly from the words of my 11 year old, "she is respectful she listens to me.. she makes me laugh and truly does care". As a mother I appreciate that she spends time listen to my concerns as well and takes in account my opinions (unlike a lot many nurse practitioners and doctors). I like the ease of communication through the app and how fast I get replies. The virtual appointments (we use to drive 45+ minutes each way for in person visits) is convenient. Her practice is adorable as well if you go in person. ?

My daughter loved her!
Let me begin by saying that I was skeptical about considering medication for my teen daughter, but I'm glad that we met with Ms. Skea for an online evaluation. I could tell that my daughter was comfortable with her, and I felt like she took the time to understand my daughter's symptoms and past history. Ms. Skea is compassionate and explained her diagnosis clearly and in depth. We decided to try medication since she hadn't been making much progress in therapy, and it has been a night and day difference. My daughter is smiling again and made new friends at school. She still is anxious from time to time, but she can finally utilize the coping skills that she wasn't able to use before medication. Thank you, Ms. Skea, for your help.

5+ stars all the way.
I started seeing Sarah about a year ago, and I was trying to locate her office phone number for my health insurance (I recently switched), when I came across this profile and was surprised to see that she didn't have 5 stars from everyone. I might only be one person, but for me, Sarah has been a life saver. I was struggling in college, and she helped me get back on track with the right meds. I just wanted to add that Sarah RARELY runs late (if ever), the online appointments are seriously convenient (and she will always fit me in right away). Not to mention, my insurance covers her services 100% when I submit out of network (and it isn't a hassle to file it). Also, the app she uses is great... it's like texting and she replies back almost immediately. I don't know many docs who are as caring as she is and so accessible. It makes sense why she doesn't take insurance because she provides concierge-level care. Don't let the negative reviews scare you, I doubt they are even real.

Nothing like the convenience of online counseling and medication management during a global pandemic. Sarah has helped me get my prescriptions filled remotely as well as eased my anxiety during this troubling time. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for competent remote services that work on their own schedule.

I would like to thank Value Based Psychiatry for always being there for me when needed. Sarah is very professional, knowledgeable, and caring. She always takes time to listen before providing her professional input. I live in Milwaukee, WI, and I have been seeing Sarah for more than a year now. When I moved from Texas, I found Value Based Psychiatry, and although it is a one and a half hour drive for me, I plan to continue using Sarah.

Sarah has been an incredible help in helping me through my ups and downs of depression. We reevaluate the medicines and doses as my depression changes over time. She is very informative and presents the pluses and minuses of any medicine I may use. She is also a great therapist, in that she listens and then teaches with examples. I am so grateful an appreciative of the help Sarah has provided me.

Sarah has been amazing with my son! She listens and makes the entire family feel like we've been heard and that our opinions matter when it comes to developing a treatment plan. While she is self pay (and out of network for my insurance), she is worth every penny! I highly recommend Sarah! The mental health field needs more people like her!

I have been to a couple of psychiatrists who want me in and out and do not take the time to explain things. Sarah explains everything so that I understand it and I can see she really cares. I'm glad I found her and would recommend to anyone who doesn't want to feel like a "number".

As a young adult, I strongly recommend Sarah for both therapy and psychiatric evaluation. Once getting to know me, she prescribed an adjustment to my anxiety medication that I have found to be extremely helpful and invaluable to my progress. Sarah's dedication to our therapy sessions and investment in my personal growth were extremely comforting, she truly goes above and beyond! I am extremely thankful that I sought her therapeutic consultation, it has had a tremendously positive impact!

Sarah is a great Nurse Practitioner! My son has never been too proud to admit he struggles with ADHD. Sarah made him feel comfortable enough to talk to her about his daily struggles. Sarah has been seeing my son for almost a year now. Since most places you go rush you in and write a quick prescription - it's refreshing to have someone who can change your teen's perspective!

Sarah didn't make me feel bad about my disorder. She talked to me and helped me understand it. I was happy to find someone who can give me meds and is nice enough to explain what's actually happening with my body/mind. Other places I have been to get you in and out of the door without taking time to understand you. Her office was also really cozy and easy to locate.

I was nervous and never thought I would need to see anyone for issues some would consider normal life but changes kept piling up and friends told me to seek an outlet to share my feelings. I found Sarah and she imediently made me feel comfortable. If I wasn't able to develope that comfort in our conversation so quickly, I might have not been able to open up and in turn not be able to let her help in the many ways she has. I can honestly say the experience has been life, as cheesy as that sounds.

I was always reluctant to consider medication but after seeing Sarah and learning more about my symptoms, I felt more comfortable about trying it. What I didn't realize was how much my symptoms were affecting me and my family, and after starting medication I noticed a huge improvement in my mood and my anxiety has been so much better.

Since I have begun therapy/treatment with Sarah I have had so many positive changes in my life. She listens thoroughly and genuinely cares to help her patients from my experience. She also really got to know me before prescribing any medications in consideration for my well being. I would recommend her to anyone who enjoys a kind approachable guide and professional to help them emotionally. She is consistent and has many different approaches for well rounded treatment. I am so thankful for her!
