.

The DR. was 1 1/2 hours late.
I was concerned when I got there (on time) and there was 4 people ahead of me. This was my 1st visit so I expected 1 hour.
She did take a phone call during my session.
She gave my samples, however they were not for the medication that she told me she wanted to try.
The receptionist collects the copay before you can see the DR.
Not much interaction, but she was straight and to the point.
I did feel very rushed and not able to tell my story in the 12 minutes I had with her.
They were polite.

Pros: They accept my insurance, gives samples.

Cons: Parking, 4 wks for apt, 15min or less sessions, late

Dr. Albeheary should have opened a medical practice. She basically throws some drugs at you and sends you on your way. She spends less than 15 minutes with you which is not long enough to even give an accurate Psychiatric assessment. She is never on time for appointments, I've never waited less than 30 minutes. Her billing is very very behind so you are treated on month and get the bill 2 months later. I would highly recommend finding a different doctor, one who can fully assess your problems.

Cons: Office is disgusting, Long Wait Times

I read some good things and some bad things before coming in for my appointment. Let me tell you i would have had more one on one time and concern from Dr. Phil on tv! She was disinterested and distracted (and late) and the only time i felt she was interested in treating me was when she suggested medication. Just because a doctor is located in a nice neighborhood, doesn't make a good doctor and just because they are a doctor, it doesn't make them a good one or normal and compassionate. Maybe she should be taking the medications that she is forcing on her patients!

Pros: she can relate to her patient's problems

Cons: because she is crazy and unreliable

.

I saw Dr. Albeheary for the first time today for anxiety. I'm a bit confused about the negative reviews; I found her very helpful, intelligent and caring. She does ask a lot of checklist questions as other reviewers have said, but I feel I'm coming to see a psychiatrist, not a psychologist- I don't expect an M.D. to carry on lengthy conversations, just diagnose and prescribe. Plus, I am self-pay and she gave me some samples which is very helpful. I am glad I found her!

Pros: Very positive

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

.

Dr. Albeheary has good instincts. I've been seeing her for years and she has helped me get firmly back on my feet after an extremely difficult time. She is aware of how my social-economic issues impacted my recovery. She is flexible with scheduling and very kind. I've also heard good comments about her from other mental health professionals.

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

Dr. Albeheary correctly diagnosed the problem. She confidently assured me that the course of action she recommended for me would help if I kept at it. I had never taken meds before and was having adverse reactions. She told me to hang in there for three weeks and then the symptoms would go away. Although other doctors recommended to go to Mayo clinic to figure out what was wrong with me, Dr. Albeheary knew it was anxiety and never wavered. She saved my life and was there for me during a very dark period. I find her to be highly intelligent, caring, and skillful at what she does. I had seen many doctors for months to figure out what was wrong with me and she was the only one who figured it out. I have been her patient for 2 years now and she is not only concerned about me but how my family is doing also. She may be late sometimes for our appointments but when it is my turn, she never rushes and treats me as if I am important in her day. I recommend her highly!

Pros: great diagnostician

Cons: none

Dr. Albehery is a soft spoken woman who seems to really think about my situations. She seems willing to work with you if you are willing to work with her.
She has been very supportive and has extended herself through e-mail. She has waived her fee, given me free medications (when needed) and spend extra time with me when I needed it.
The appointments are generally very short, but she will spend the time I need.
With her help, I am learning many things about myself and am working through some tough times.
I truly appreciate her concern and response to my needs.

Pros: Insight and concern

Cons: short appointments

If you are looking for a no-questions-asked pharmaceutical dispenser, this is the "doctor" for you. If you are looking for a trained professional to help you address mental illness, do not bother making an appointment here. As a first time patient this doctor scheduled a whopping 15 minutes for my appointment. This surprised me as I thought surely it would take more than 15 minutes for an initial consultation. As it turned out, she scheduled 10 minutes more than she actually used. Even though this doctor had never seen me before and knew nothing of my current/past problems or symptoms, she had written me a prescription after 2 minutes in here office. She asked me to diagnose myself (i.e., I told her I think I having a problem with depression) and then she asked a FEW perfunctory questions about my medical history (i.e., are you alergic to any medications, family history, etc.) and then proceeded to write a prescription for a medication she said I would have to stay on for 3-5 years minimum. She did not ask a SINGLE question about my symptoms or what might be causing these symptoms. As it turns out, I do not suffer from depression but am bipolar. The medication she prescribed would have made my condition worse and likely led to suicidal tendencies. This doctor should not call herself a doctor and I highly recommend that anyone looking for real help avoid her.

Dr.Albeheary was my daughters' quack doctor who was sent for her by her primary care physician-anoither incompetent doctor. My daughter was hospitalized for more than a week. When she came home she was in worst shape psychologically and we couldn't afford to pay for the prescriptions which led to even more depression. My daughter said this docotor never seemed to be listening to her and offered very little help or hope except to prescribe medication which we couldn't buy. She has been charged thousands of dollars by Dr. Albeheary-we were told by the hospital that she was in our network but the insurance company said she isn't so we are responsible for paying for it--She has been paid her money but she is still asking for more---another greedy doctor that doesn't really care about the health of the patient.! Do not go to her at any time cause you willt find yourself in need of different doctor.

As a Nurse suffering with panic disorder and chronic anxiety, Dr. Albeheary is my favorite doctor. She is incredible! Always keeps her appointments, always offers sample meds if available, and honestly cares for you. I would reccommend her to anyone!

I lost my health insurance a month ago, Dr Albeheary waived her fee, gave me sample medications so that I won't have to pay out of pocket for a very expensive medication taht I'm taking.
Her kindness brought tears to my eyes, That's how a doctor should be.

Pros: excellent psychiatrist

I moved from california a month a go, I suffer from depression. I've seen at least 2 other psychiatrist who were insensitive to my needs until Dr Albeheary was recommended to me by a friend, sure enough, sensitive, listens to you, spends time, wisdom beyond her years.

Pros: Communicates via email.

Dr. Albeheary does not have a good bedside manner. You get the feeling she is uncaring and not listening to you. I went to see her for the first time recently. She would ask me questions and then stare out the window absentmindedly as I responded. If you want someone to thoughtlessly write you a prescription this is the dr., if you want real care do not go to her.

Pros: Location, Appointment Availablility

.

Troubled, in need of help, and having read the other CitySearch review of the psychiatrist , I made an appointment. The anticipation of help and hope grew. Her assistant called and rescheduled the appointment. Initially I was disheartened, but having developed a sense of commitment to her and finally getting the care I needed, I scheduled a second appointment date/time. Finally, with hopeful anticipation I arrived for the appointment. Doctor Albeheary did NOT even show up for the appointment! Her assistant kept telling me that she was just running late and would be in shortly. I waited but she never arrived for the appointment time that had been rescheduled at her request.

Do not select this physician if you want to be treated with respect and care -- in fact, do not select this physician if you want to be treated at all because she doesn't show up.

I was diagnosed when I was younger with ADD. So, now that I am an adult, I have Adult ADD. When I first moved to Chicago, I bounced around to a few Doctors. I was never pleased. I never felt comfortable with any other Doctor. Dr. Albeheary is great. She listens to me and can actually understand my problems. It has now been over a year and things have been going so much better with work and my relationships/friendships, since I went to see her.
