Specialties

Dr. David Sheehan has the following 1 specialty

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Dr. Sheehan is the best!

I saw Dr. Sheehan for nearly a decade. He truly helped me get my mental health on track so I could live my life. I've never found another provider that has been so patient, knowledgable and determined. Not only did Dr. Sheehan help to find the right medications and dosages when I needed them, but he helped me wean off of them when I had learned behavioral techniques. I learned triggers and responses to cope with my issues so I didn't have to rely on medication. I always felt welcomed in his office and by his staff. I owe my quality of life and success to Dr. Sheehan. I now measure every provider up to his level.

This guy is owned by the drug manufacturing companies!

This "doctor" completely ruined our family. I took my ex-wife to him in 1999 for anxiety disorder. He over medicated her, and she is still totally unable to function. He made a video of her to show other clinicians how to spot a person with this problem, for use with his drug funded "MINI" study. He should have his license rescinded!
