Specialties

Dr. John R Sealy has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • 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.

I feel the same way. My child has been a patient with Dr. Sealy for over 15 years. She made remarkable progress in his care. He always addressed medication issues and worked on it until we found one that worked. There are other members in our family that also see him and have had very positive experiences. I find him to be extremely professional, prompt, caring, and genuinely concerned. This has been my experience with Dr. Sealy.

Professional and caring

I have never written an online review of a physician before. While googling Dr. Sealy's address to complete a form I found this site and and noticed the negative reviews. I thought I should express my opinion here because my experience has been different. I do respect the other opinions that have been expressed here, and I can only speak for myself. But, in all of my interactions with Dr. Sealy he has always been professional, courteous, caring, and responsible. I get a strong sense that he cares about me and my treatment. He always asks how I am doing and takes the time to listen and respond to all of my concerns. The drug that he prescribed to me has made a very positive change in my life. As does any professional, he does expect to be paid. But, unlike some other medical treatment experiences I've had, I have never gotten the sense that money is all that matters to him. I have been seeing Dr. Sealy every few months for almost two years and, thus far I have been very satisfied.

One Star

Physician prefers to prescribe medications, before having patients see therapist for second opinion to confirm disorder. I saw physician for over a year and became dependent on prescribed Ativan and had serious negative reaction to prescribed SSRI. Physician didn't not realize SSRI was making my condition worse and got upset when I sought a second opinion or questioned his treatment suggestions. Very expensive and regularly runs late when starting appointments. If you do see him, please seek a second opinion if you don't see positive results after a few months. Really wish I did. I had to complete an uncomfortable intensive inpatient detox program to come off of Ativan.
