Specialties

Dr. Kathleen S Sheehan has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • 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.

Insightful, educational, effective, lifesaver

Dr Sheehan saved my life and explained to me how I was not to blame for all the negative that I had experienced in my life. Dr Sheehan taught me so much about mental health I could probably test out and get a masters degree in interpersonal studies..ie a counseler myself. Though mental health problems will never go away, being educated and correct medications to assist in the control of these problems, there is no miracle cure, but you can learn enough and have access to a great Dr, then the chances to have a better life is very possible and even with 5 disorders and multiple hospitalizations, I have managed to marry and find a level of live ability I never thought would be available. I am completely mentally disabled and on SSD, but alive with a better life than I had thought possible, due to Dr Sheehan's refusal to give up on a very complex troubled intelligent miserable person. I have 5 textbook mood disorders. Without Dr Sheehan I would probably be dead, in prison, institutionalized, or living I der a cardboard box u der a bridge.

HORRIBLE DR.!!!!

Words cant express the unprofessional-ism of this woman. First she ABRUPTLY took me off of medication without consulting with me first (which had devastating side effects) Then when speaking with her about it over the phone she proceeded to have an attitude about the situation even though i was calm, and was VERY rude and even tried to put me at fault that I "lost" the prescription. A good Dr. does not get nasty on the phone nor does a GOOD Dr. deny all responsibility when the patient has proof, but lies about the scenario. She should have review information proving the prescription was never filled let along prescribed and fixed the issue at hand instead of getting defensive. In her profession it is so very inappropriate to abruptly take someone off of medication as just about everything they proscribe has side effects. Oh and best part is she does not see people at their scheduled time, I quote "it is your responsibility to make time" so be sure to get there early and have time to be seen much later then your appointment time. -One upset patient that will never be going to this lousy Dr. again.
