Ratings for Dr. Michael F. Sheehan
I've been seeing Dr. Sheehan for many years. One of the things I love about him is he never rushes me out. He knows everything about me and my family dynamics and genuinely cares. He asks how things are going, and listens. I don't have to fill him in on the next visit (3 months later), because he documents what I share with him. It can be very stressful seeing a Dr. who doesn't seem to care, but he is different. I actually look forward to our quarterly chats. Even when my insurance changed and he was no longer on my plan, he worked out a reduced rate. I couldn't imagine having to start over with someone else. Honestly, it used to bother me that sometimes there was a long wait, but I know he gives his other patients as much time as they need as well, so I am understanding of that fact. I love the front desk staff. If I call and have to leave a message, I always have a return call the same day. This is really important. Basically you get what you put into it. :)
I'm writing this review from 17yrs of experience with the psychiatric community. That's A LOT of Dr.'s and MANY failed treatments! I've been seeing Dr. Sheehan for the past few years. We are slowly recovering my health, most of which was compromised by the ignorance of previous Dr.'s. Dr. Sheehan is up to date on the most current research and will show you compassion and empathy. If you can get into to see him consider yourself Blessed!
Dr. Sheehan is by far the best Psychiatrist I have met!! I live in Saint Petersburg, Fl and his office is in north Tampa, Fl so I drive over an hour to see him. I have waited an hour or so after my appointment time to see him. He takes his time with every patient, really listens,that is why there is a wait at times. When I first made an appt I was told that he was booked for months but the I could be called if there was a cancellation. I was called within a week. I have Bipolar,anxiety,panic disorder,ADD. I was at my lowest point when I came to Dr. Sheehan and now I can see the light. I have been to other Psych Dr-they only spent a few mins with me, did not care/listen, only wanted to prescribe more meds then was needed. Dr. Sheehan is a caring doctor that ask/answers questions and really listens. He doesn't just give you meds. He gives you feed back and tools to cope. You will not be disappointed, bring a book to read while you wait. The wait is so worth the care you will receive!!
