  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

  • Neurology

The best psychiatrist ever!

Dr. Shemo believes in treating patients with respect and truly listening to what they have to say. Rather than just pulling out her prescription pad as a solution to every problem a patient has, she is continually searching for safer, more effective alternative treatments. In the 20 years since I was first diagnosed with psychiatric illnesses, I have had many doctors. SHE WAS THE BEST!!! I will miss her very much.
