I was really nervous about going to Dr. Albeheary but I really needed someone to talk to and help in life. When I walked into the office it was very inviting and immediately I felt more relaxed and calm. Dr. Albeheary really has a gift and I am glad that I found her.

Highly recommended

I have never seen anyone for mental wellness before Dr.Albeheary and am so grateful I landed in her care; she is a gem. She listens and advises like a therapist/psychologist but has the expertise and medical training of an MD with ability to write prescriptions as appropriate--the perfect combination. I had to change insurance recently since my COBRA coverage ended so I chose my new policy solely based on whether or not it was one that Dr.Albeheary accepts. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a non-judgmental, disarming, graceful physician who takes pride in her work and cares about her patients.

Best MD I've been to!

She knows her stuff and wants to help the patient not medicate them. She helped me get off of some horrible medications and actually find something that helped and treated my symptoms. I was so sad I moved from Chicago and she could not longer be my MD. Go to her!!!

Five Stars

I’ve been seeing Dr. Albeheary for about five years now. I feel so lucky and grateful to have her as my doctor. I’m not originally from Chicago, so I saw other psychiatrists before I moved to here, but none of them compare to Dr. Albeheary. She's been with me for many ups and downs over the years. She celebrates with me when I'm doing well and does everything she can to help me when I'm doing well. I started seeing her for anxiety/depression, but she has been there for me through a range of issues including my lack of a romantic life, troubles with my career, issues with my family and friends, dependency on alcohol, problems with my weight, and just life in general. She not only listens but gives real world solutions. I’ve never felt in better hands than I do with her. She is very knowledgeable on different medicines to help me cope with my depression/anxiety. And she’s always willing to work with me to find the right medicine that works for me. If we try out a new medicine and she has samples, she’s always willing to give me the free samples to help me out financially since she knows that’s an issue of mine. She’s there for me to listen and also to give medicine, but she’s also very honest about the fact that medicine can't cure it all and when I wasn’t doing well she encouraged me to get additional weekly therapy from another doctor in addition to cope. She was able to give me referrals not only for this but also other doctors that I’ve needed for other medical issues in the past. It’s nice to have someone you trust to give you a recommendation because it’s so hard to just pick a random doctor on your own. It may sound weird to look forward to a doctor’s appointment, but I always look forward to my appointments with her. It’s nice to have someone to talk to. She always gives honest and unbiased feedback. She’s very calming and compassionate. She knows what she's doing and I don't feel like I'm an experiment for her (like I have when I went to other psychiatrists in the past). She makes me feel normal, and not like I'm some crazy person for having the issues I have. She never makes me feel rushed. In fact she always makes sure there isn't anything else I want to discuss before I leave my appointment. If I have something intense going on in my life or if I change medicines at my appointment with her, then she always asks that I email and check in with her in between my monthly appointments. She truly is concerned with how I’m doing. Recently, I emailed her with medicine concern between appointments and she called and emailed me right away to figure out a solution. When I had an emergency in the past and needed to see her immediately, she did everything she could to move things around and got me in right away because she knew how bad I needed to see her. It’s nice to know that I can always count on her. I constantly tell my friends and family that I don't know what I would do without her, because she means that much to me. I referred a friend to her that loved her as much as I do. I would refer her to anyone and everyone looking for help. She’s the best, and if I were to ever move out of the Chicago area, I know it will be impossible to ever find a doctor as good as her. She’s set the standard too high.
