I struggled with bipolar issues for years and went to see this doctor for years and never got better. He only made me worse. I sought out another doctor, found the right one and am doing exponentially better. I personally find Dr. Shain to be almost criminal for he is an awful doctor who shows little care in his patients. He only hurt me more, never healed me. Do not go to Dr. Shain. The only reason I continued with his services for so long is that he was covered by insurance. It is better to pay for a doctor who has the qualifications. I strongly recommend to whoever reads this to NOT have Dr. Shain as your psychiatrist.

Our 13 year old son has been a patient of Dr. Shain's since he was five years old. We believe that, because of Dr. Shain's expertise in the areas of Early Onset Bipolar Disorder and psychopharmacology, our son is alive and well and living with us. Dr. Shain has always been caring and concerned, not only about our son, but also about the effect his illness has on us a family unit and each of us individually. He has taught us parenting techniques that provide us with the best results in dealing with the difficult challenges we face at home with our son's behavior. I would not hesitate for a moment to refer other families to Dr. Shain. In fact, as the facilitator of a support group for parents of children with BP, I have referred many families to him. Thank you, Dr. Shain, for teaching us how to provide an environment that our son can flourish in.

Our son has been a patient of Dr. Shain's for 9 years and we have been (and continue to be) totally satisfied with the care he has received from him. His passion for children and adolescents is evident in his manner and overall interactions. In addition, he has tremendous compassion for the parent/s of his patients and addresses the total family dynamic as part of his practice. We trust him completely and his wealth of psychopharmacologic knowledge has been extremely valuable over the years since our son's drug regimens needed frequent adjustments to address his issues. Dr. Shain has been very accommodating with appointment scheduling and responds to phone calls (or pages for urgent matters) in a timely manner. We recommend him without reservation.-- A Walnut Creek Family

Shain doesn't listen to parents, doesn't return phone calls to other doctors, pharmacies, and parents.
