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.

It's not often one finds a psychiatrist with the level of compassion, skill and affinity for his profession as Dr. Sheridan. I can't say enough good things about the way he treated me and the quality of care. This is one of the "good guys" in the mental health field!

Wow - unbelievable

Wow - not sure how to put this - but I am frankly flabergasted. This psychiatrist has great reviews so I call and leave a detailed message about my 29 year old developementally delayed daughter who is suffering from anxiety attacks and I am looking for a MD to treat her. That I would appreciate a call back. NOT one call back. So I call back and then call the number on his recording for his assistant to make an appointment - she said that he probably did not call me back because he does not take the insurance she has.... I told her that I would pay cash and she said he cannot take CASH Paying patients. I asked then why did he not even call me back???? No answer. So left high and dry - I have called 5 other psychiatrists with no retunred call over 5 days ago - so I am now I am on the making additional calling phase. I am totally totally flabergasted. She has such high anxiety that she cannot be left alone and no one will call me back and then Dr. Sheridan does not take cash? WOw
