Hello and welcome! Choosing a psychiatrist can be a daunting process that I hope to make easier for you.
Before opening my own practice, I was the Medical Director of Eating Disorders and the Partial Hospitalization Program at Insight Behavioral Health Centers, a large multi-center clinic based in downtown Chicago. Although I welcome patients of all complexity levels, I am skilled in treating very challenging cases, including patients with significant medical conditions or nutritional deficits. Prior to being a Medical Director, I was fortunate enough to do my psychiatry training (residency) at our local but world-renowned Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
My clinical interests include bipolar disorder, depression, eating disorders, ADHD, addictions, women's health, and all varieties of anxiety disorders (including PTSD & OCD). I often work with young adults but treat older adolescents and middle-aged adults as well.
I believe being a physician is a privilege that comes with a responsibility for lifelong learning. My patients deserve the highest quality of care available, so I make the effort to read medical texts or research publications every day. I pride myself on being warm, respectful, and motivated to improve the quality of life for others. I love being a psychiatrist and believe this shows in my enthusiasm and dedication.
Although this is stated elsewhere on the website, please note that I am not in any insurance networks. Patients may seek out-of-network level reimbursement from their insurance company.
Verified Patient Reviews
I felt like I wouldn’t have been able to merely google the information. She knows her stuff!
Dr. Bethany Campbell is compassionate and understanding with a kind demeanor and a vast array of knowledge. I highly recommend her.
Great follow-up. Dr. Campbell always does a thorough review of my current state and makes adjustments to meds as necessary. Shows genuine concern for my well-being.
She is always so kind and helpful! I am always impressed with her medical and science knowledge!
Prompt, professional, empathetic. A very good choice
Dr. Campbell is the best. I recommend her for anyone new to Chicago or anyone simply looking for a new doctor in the area. She is fantastic!
Dr. Campbell is unlike any psychiatrist I have met before. She is very warm, outgoing and makes me feel at ease whenever I see her. Dr. Campbell is very caring and thorough. She provides excellent care and is very accessible. I highly recommend her.
Dr Campbell = Excellent
Very compassionate. Took time to exolain options. I was part of the decision process. Listened and then questioned. Highly professional.
I love Dr. Campbell! She is very knowledgeable and caring. She remembers what I have told her in the past. I always look forward to seeing her. She is genuine, open, and broad-minded. She combines her knowledge of current research on my disorder with a consideration of any idiosyncrasies tied to my own expression of the problem. I like and appreciate this quality very much!
My visit with Bethany was on time, comfortable, and insightful as usual. She is a good person and respectful. I highly recommend Bethany.
LOVE HER! she is so sweet, kind, and very smart. Im so glad i was recommended to her.
Dr. Campbell is outstanding--smart, compassionate, personable.
She was unusually bubbly in an annoying way. Did not call in the prescriptions she said she was going to and never followed up with me as to why. Extremely overpriced. Office was small and jam packed with all of her clutter. She kept making frown faces and saying you seem sad. Uhh yes I was sad that I was wasting my time and a ton of money to be talked to like I am a child. I am stunned by all the positive reviews.
Dr. Campbell was very thorough, pleasant and accommodating.
Dr. Campbell helped me through a rough time and worked with me to figure out the right combination of self-care and medication.
I recently had my first appointment with Dr. Cambell and will be seeing her again in 2 weeks. She was exceptionally kind and compassionate, 2 qualities I greatly appreciate in a Psychiatrist. She not only listened to my concerns and needs, but also helped me address difficult issues without being overly pushy or inquisitive. She knew when it was appropriate to stop asking questions about topics that were too painful to discuss at that time. We came up with a plan for treatment that I am more thsn comfortable with and I am looking forward to working with her in the future.
Today was my first visit with Dr Campbell. I cannot verbalize how grateful I am to her; she is compassionate and dedicated to her patients. I had a bad (recent) experience with another psych doctor; needless to say, I was reluctant to try another. Was referred to Dr Campbell via word of mouth and couldn't be happier with the initial visit. She listens to your concerns, history, etc. Then, comes up with a game plan. She encourages and welcomes patient feedback (which usually is not the norm, I feel). HIGHLY recommended! First impressions mean a lot. Especially when you're scared and uncertain.
Very thorough visit. Dr Campbell is welcoming, warm, and compassionate. She is a good listener and takes the time to understand what is going on from a physical, emotional, and psychiatric perspective. Not a typical experience. I would recommend this doctor.
Awesome and genuinely interested in my well-being.
Dr. Campbell is enthusiastic, caring, humble, kind, intelligent, and up-to-date on relevant knowledge. I am grateful that she is my doctor and always looks forward to seeing her. She is cheery, while also being very conscientious. She is open to evaluating patients on a case-by-case basis, which makes me especially committed to having her as my doctor. Her humility combined with intelligence is lovely to see...I have never seen that combination of traits in another doctor of mine.
Dr Campbell may not necessarily be the best fit for everyone, as she is more of a contemplative listener/consoler than active engager, but subjectively I appreciate her non-confrontational style and she clearly knows her stuff when it comes to diagnosis and creating a course of action.
Bethany is always respectful and professional. She is very prompt and makes each visit worth the cost.
Always amazing and genuine!
She is fantastic. Smart, compassionate, great listener. I'm so happy I found Dr. Campbell.
I think she is a brilliant and kind doctor. I trust her!
She's wonderful, welcoming, easy to talk to. Highly recommend.
Dr Campbell is a very kind doctor and caring
Dr. Campbell is the best doctor I've ever had the fortune of finding. Phenomenal service!
Dr. Campbell is always engaged and empathetic. She's careful about treatment recommendations. I really appreciate her care and would recommend her to anyone.
The visit was really great . Dr. Campbell was so nice and helpful . I would highly recommend . She is very knowledgeable.
Superb like always
No wait. Great doc.
She's a wonderful doc and I'm glad I found her!
she is great! very patient and kind, makes you feel comfortable and is sincere in her concern for her patients well-being.
As always, Dr. Campbell is a thoughtful, kind and very caring individual. She's also an exceptional doctor. It's a pleasure to work with her.
I have been seeing Dr. Campbell for almost a year now. She has been so great at looking beyond what medications work best for my depression / fatigue. She looks at other medical factors that might be causing some symptoms. She is truly interested in science, and is always reading and educating herself, which I really appreciate. She is also very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend her! :)
Dr. Campbell is the best! She's the most caring and compassionate doctor I've ever met. She spent a significant amount of time getting to know me and my medical background at our initial visit. And gives me the same amount of presence and attention with all my follow-up appts. She is always patient/thorough and has extensive knowledge on drug therapy options. She's is a diamond in the rough when it comes to patient advocacy and impressively responsive to my needs in between appts. Highly recommend her in every way!!!
Great as usual
Dr. Campbell is phenomenal, 100%!
Very attentive, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I'm looking forward to working with her further.
Most helpful doctor ever
I have been seeing Dr. Campbell for a little over a year now and I can't say enough great things about her. She's very intelligent, caring, and thorough. Even when I'm not in the office, she's easy to contact and will help me through any issues I'm having with my insurance or prescriptions. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Campbell is very kind, direct and effective with each appointment. I am pleased with her detail and punctuality.
She is FANTASTIC!
I've been seeing Doctor Campbell for about 8 months now, and it is really easy to trust her and she welcomes continuous feedback so that she can create a custom program just for you. With issues like anxiety and depression, the day to day changes are so small that it is hard to see them. But when I think back to the mess I was when I walked into Dr. Campbell's office for the first time and look at how I feel now, the difference is huge and for the positive. And it's not that I'm a drugged up Zombie. If you met me, you would never realize I am on a custom program of various medications where the goal is to keep me balanced.
She was very personable and has an easy, calm manner.
She was great. Listened and really made me feel like she cared and I wasn't just another appointment filled.
She's an excellent clinician. She listened and created a plan of care appropriate for all the symptoms I was dealing with. I appreciate her follow through. She followed up with me and addressed all of my concerns. She's honest and extremely patient. She's well worth the visit.
Bethany is very attentive, very concerned, and very willing to help you in whatever means possible. She is very through in reviewing your options. I have seen her for 3 years now and she is very loral to me, and I really appreciate that it. She goes above and beyond to meet request for refills or discuss adjustments if needed. My only watchout would be that if you know what you want to try, she will give it to you, but with guidelines. Be careful what you ask for.
Dr. Campbell is amazing, great bedside manner and is covers all the bases in respect to your diagnosis and care. I wouldn't see anyone else. She's great!!
Dr. Campbell is such a caring and compassionate doctor, it is a real joy to see her and work with her. I don't mind waiting a few minutes to see her as I know she's just as caring about other patients as she is with me. Couldn't recommend her more.
No wait/great doc.
She's so easy to talk to and knowledgable. It was a good experience overall. She makes herself accessible and offers resources to help with payment and lab tests.
This was my second time seeing Dr Campbell. She is AWESOME, I wish I had found her years ago! She is great at really listening to provide the best, individualized, solutions! Thanks Dr. Campbell!
A thorough, astute, diagnostic clinician, who refrains from jumping to conclusions; personable; empathetic, patient & compassionate as well as, realistic and flexible. In other words, she's everything you'd want in a "shrink" ; ).
Dr. Campbell has been instrumental and persistent in her care in a very difficult diagnosis. She is extremely knowledgeable, caring and a good listener. She truly has the patient's well being at the core of her practice. Our family would have been lost if it hadn't been for Dr. Campbell. Highly recommend.
Dr. Campbell is awesome. She really listens to your concerns and it's clear she genuinely cares about her patients. My appointment was at the end of the day and we went over our alloted time, but she was in no rush to leave. Highly recommended.
Dr. Campbell is fantastic. She really listens to my concerns and tries to find a solution that works well for me. She knows a lot about current research and uses this to help determine the best way to treat me, too, which I appreciate. She also really cares about her patients.
No wait, professional, great listener and very helpful.
Gosh I found myself totally looking forward to my appointment with Dr. Campbell for the week leading up to it. She is very smart, and I appreciate her attentiveness and energy. I feel that Dr. Campbell understands me very well. I like that I can tell her things that are not so great about myself too. Thumbs way up!
Dr Campbell really gets to know her patients, what is going on in their lives, etc.
She is amazing... very empathetic and knowledgable. I have been to A LOT of psychiatrists and they were all uncaring and just prescribed me what the drug rep gave them. Furthermore... I couldn't get them to call me back half of the time. Dr. Campbell has been, and continues to remain a credit to her profession. She has helped me more in a year than ANY of the others over the years and years I have been going. I finally feel good and am getting better everyday thanks to her!! I adore her!!
Dr. Campbell is incredibly personable and really cares about her patients. She is also extremely thorough in a way that does not seem invasive at all. You'll want to share with Dr. Campbell you'll know she has your best interests in mind at all times.
Good visit. She is excellent at remembering details of previos appointments, very thorough in selecting a treatment plan and explaining it.
She was so sweet and attentive. She was running 15 minutes late but that was only because the time she spends on every patient. I love her!
Quick and comfortable rapport developed between us. Which I greatly appreciate.
I can't even afford to see Dr. Campbell but I do because she is just the best. Seriously. She is so helpful and caring and totally willing to work with you to figure out exactly what you need. She is worth the $. Probably the best mental health professional I have ever seen. She has a great balance of respect for individual situations and knows a ton about the available medications, but is clearly also not totally married to medication - she's willing to work with you to figure out the best solution for you, whether that's a combo of diet changes and meds or whatever. Sometimes she's running a little late but it's never too bad (never been more than 15 min I don't think) and it's because she actually spends time with you, so not a major problem.
What a great listener . Highly recommend her .I found my psychiatrist
I would highly recommend Dr. Campbell. She is a great listener and seems to care very much about her patients.
Dr. Campbell is extremely attentive, positive and friendly on all visits and remembered details of what we talked about prior. After listening she maps out a treatment plan and explains it well.
Best in Chicago. No wait, pleasant, professional and very helpful.
I am a veteran who just got out of the military less than a year ago after serving for nine years. I am one of the unlucky veterans that has been waiting for my disability to be approved for over a year; that means no health insurance, medical care, disability assistance, or medication. I suffer with multiple illnesses from PTSD, bipolar disorder, anxiety attacks, ADD and insomnia. All of my family is in Texas, I work full time and go to school full time, so I am up here alone. I found a therapist that I love and went through 2 psychiatrists before meeting Dr. C. I made a commitment to getting better mentally, for the sake of my future. I saved a lot of money (for a veteran, which isn't much) so that I can put my all into getting mentally healthy. I never new the effect that the mind could have on your body (for me, nausea, lack of sleep, nightmares and flashbacks, etc.). This was a decision that I had to make. My appts was the absolutely amazing. After nine years, my concept is if you show up on time, you are late. After my time was up (i'm always staring at my watch), she refused to let me leave. TIme wasn't a factor for her at that moment. Every appt was the same way. Instead of treating you like a second class citizen, she treats you like a human. She wants to bring out the best in everyone and believes that failing is not an option. I eat peanut butter sandwiches for most meals, and have rid of everything that I could because meeting with her and my therapist were the highlights of my weeks; and although I can no longer afford the appts, it makes me sad that I have to find another option for help. Like I said before, she is the third doctor I have seen and I am not looking forward to finding a new one. Unfortunately for me, she set the standard too high for any doctor to compare to her commitment and care. I still have ways to go to get better, but I got a lot out of our appts. Any separating veteran I know in the area I will DEFINITELY refer to her. So if you chose her, be prepared to be wowed. E.E.G. United States veteran "hooyah"
I'm so fortunate to have Dr Campbell as my doctor. It's very rare when you can find a Dr that you immediately feel like you can trust, and I've definitely found that with Dr Campell!
I have been seeing Dr. Campbell for years and she is wonderful. She not only is kind and caring but really knows her way around every drug there is and can hone in on your specific symptoms and side effects to make certain you are prescribed the right meds. She is always reading up on medications and psychiatry to keep abreast of what is new.
Excellent, as always. Thanks for everything, Dr. Campbell.
-- Friendly, energetic, sweet, good listener -- You can tell she knows her stuff -- she's a brainiac -- Would definitely (and am) seeing her again :)
My visit was great! She was very thorough and it was a very relaxed, comfortable environment so I felt free to talk and be myself.
Good listener. Good plan of action.
I felt extremely well taken care of by an up-to-date extremely smart, competent, reliable, professional, and caring physician! This was my third visit to Dr. Campbell. I'm seeing her even though my insurance covers a different doctor -- that says a lot! Thumbs way up for this super-smart, thoughtful doctor!
She listened and offered good insight. She genuinely cared.
Dr. Campbell, as always, is kind, compassionate and always, always has ideas in case something isn't working for you. I'm so glad that I found her. Highest recommendation
Awesome, helpful doc. Go see her
Dr. Campbell is wonderful. She listened to my concerns, offered new treatment options and actually follows up!!(that was a new one for me) I was used to doctors prescribing me different brand names of the same drug class and never hearing back. I took a leap of faith and thought I would try something new. I can now say that it was absolutely worth it. I am very lucky to have found Dr. Campbell. She's a good one people, I highly recommend. I understand that the cost can seem high but relative to the quality of your life it's a no brainer.
Dr. Campbell is WONDERFUL. I often have a problem of "not wanting to bother others with my problems", and that includes doctors. I know it's counterproductive, but Dr. Campbell has adapted our sessions to make sure asks me direct questions so she can hear what my complains are and she knows just what I need to talk about and what I don't really need to talk about if I don't want you. I'll be continuing with her treatment and she'll be my psychiatrist for a long LONG time!
It was a great visit! Bethany is intelligent, perceptive, thoughtful and highly energetic. I would definitely recommend her.
Absolutely excellent doctor, really cares about her patients, very thorough and at the same time very refreshing.
Professional, took action, as usual. Also warm, compassionate and generally caring and I needed that today. She's one of the great ones!
Fantastic doctor. Incredibly thorough and welcoming. Walked me through my medical history and made a lot of fantastic suggestions.
As always, Dr. Campbell was kind, remembered details from our past visit and I always feel better after seeing her. She is a compassionate person and an excellent doctor, can't be that combo. Highly recommend.
I felt valued throughout the consultation. I look forward to working with her again. I felt hopeful after meeting her.
Incredible energy. Extremely knowledgeable. Great active-listener. I can see why others have recommended her. Uses her professional experience to leverage a logical and safe solution. Takes lots of notes and is genuinely focused on finding the RIGHT solution for me. Put me at ease about my current situation. Bubbly component to her personality put me at ease while talking about anxiety.
Dr. Campbell is a wonderful, compassionate and caring doctor who is quick to return messages and fill prescriptions. I highly recommend her as she has helped me a great deal in a short period of time.
No wait, always friendly, helpful and professional. Reasonably priced but dosn't accept AMEX so plan accordingly.
As always, she is kind, knowledgeable and wants to make sure you have all you need before leaving. She's a wonderful doctor and a very caring person.
Dr. Campbell is very knowledgeable and keeps up on research and information relevant to her field. She is very compassionate and is not the kind of doctor who would prescribe you something just to prescribe it - she's truly determined to do what's best for her patients.
Great as always.
I continue to come to Bethany as she continues to provide an environment where I feel comfortable.
After years of being on medication, Dr. Campbell finally put me on a medication regiment that actually works. I am so grateful for finding her on ZocDoc. She is very helpful and attentive. She is available via email and phone, which is very helpful, especially when there are complications with the pharmacy, or needs to consult with another doctor, etc. I highly recommend Dr. Campbell and am so grateful for all the help she has given me.
I should note that the only reason there was waiting time was because I had to fill out paperwork for a first time visit. Dr. Campbell is kind, intuitive, quick to take action and has a wonderful "bedside manner". She didn't stop thinking about me once I left her office, she emailed me with helpful coupons and actively scheduled our next visit with many open times to work with my busy schedule. I'm not one to overdo it, but I'm beyond lucky to have found her. Within a day she made a difference in one of my conditions and she shows no signs of stopping to help make me better. I'm truly blessed, I highly recommend her. Yes, the price tag might stop you, but her intellect, compassion and care are worth every penny. Thank you for what you do, Dr. Campbell.
Dr Campbell is great at putting you at ease, listening thoughtfully, asking good questions, and she remembers what I tell her in future visits, which isn't always the case with certain doctors.
Doctor Campbell is very good!!
Best in Chicago!
Highly recommended. She listens, is extremely intelligent, and genuinely cares. Sad that this is a rarity in the profession, but so glad I found her.
She goes above and beyond to take THE BEST care to the best of her impressive knowledge and you just know you are in very good hands. What an excellent doctor, listener and therapist. I very much appreciate all the validation, empathy, breakthroughs and honesty I receive from her every visit.
Easy to make appointments, no wait, and nice light mood as opposed to some of those judgmental atmospheres that certain psychiatrists create
Excellent! I feel completely comfortable sharing with her what I'm going through and trust her judgement implicitly.
Don't be fooled into thinking the high ratings are just because of her compassion and upbeat attitude (though she does have both of those, and in spades). She is incredibly knowledgeable about the science behind our brain chemistry. At the drop of a hat, she can talk about which disorders are caused by which chemical imbalances and how the medications will attempt to affect the situation. She uses all the official medical lingo, but intuitively seems to know when she has to explain things in a simpler language, and when she doesn't.
Intelligent, approachable, and down to earth. Her enthusiasm and genuine concern for her patients is apparent the moment you walk in her office. Don't mistake her youthful appearance for a lack of knowledge and insight. She is a smart cookie and is on top of everything. She is easy to get in with and I love the convenience of scheduling appointments through ZocDoc. I feel so fortunate to have been referred to her. I highly recommend her.
What a gem.
Dr. Campbell is amazing! I completely trust her, and I would highly recommend her!
Very knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Campbell.
One of the best. Prompt and professional. Go see her.
Professional , She is a caring person.
Dr. Campbell is FANTASTIC. She is knowledgable and fun- I trust her completely.
I loved it! I feel very comfortable talking to Dr. Campbell talking about anything. I definitely recommend her
Only 3 appointments in but she's been great so far.
No wait, very professional and helpful.
I really respect her and appreciate everything that she does to support me.
Scatter brained. I also saw her on a Saturday morning which could have been an impact.
Dr. Campbell is obviously extremely conscientious! She had looked up my medication history before the appointment and was thorough in her assessment of my problems. She was attentive throughout the session and is very knowledgeable about my particular issues.
I cannot even begin to describe how wonderful it feels to go to a psychaitrist for the first time and feel good about the session. The majority of psychaitrists out there are cold and unrelatable. Bethany is very warm and compassionate. She definitely knows her stuff about depression, and genuinely wants to help. You can just tell within minutes of meeting her that she is a good person. I would refer anyone to Dr. Campbell.
I personally don't like opening up about my problems with people I don't know, but Dr. Campbell made me feel very comfortable and seemed to genuinely care about my concerns. It's always hard choosing a doctor, especially a psychiatrist, but Dr. Campbell is someone I would highly recommend.
Very nice and thoughtful. Highly recommend
I really appreciated her wonderful upbeat personality. She was very informative when I asked questions and provided many options for treatment. I look forward to working with her. She mad me feel extremely comfortable and welcomed.
Loved my visit. Very warm, caring and professional. She really listened and seemed to care
Bethany was an incredibly personable individual who was excited to see me. To be honest, I was very nervous going into the appointment. I have never seen a psychologist and didn't know exactly where to begin. Overall, she made it a very comfortable experience.
Dr. Campbell is an exceptional psychiatrist. She is warm, patient and understanding. She took more time than any doctor has ever given to me-- as I told her my life Story. She was so on point; I couldn't believe how intuitive she was. Anyways I could go on and on... If you want to be heard and not just nodded at -- see dr c.
Dr. Campbell is the most kindhearted, understand and nonjudgmental doctor I've ever seen. She has a great personality and makes you feel very comfortable. I have recommend her to many of my friends and they now see her regularly. You will not regret going to see her.
I don't usually rate doctors but was more than impressed! Taking the time to not necessarily dig into my past but understand where I have been and where I am now and how she can help me move forward. Looking forward to my next appt.
She made me feel very comfortable, listened to my needs and feelings and I felt she really cares about her patients. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs psychiatric help.
I highly recommend Dr. Campbell! She always takes extra time with her patients and truly cares.
I have been seeing various psychiatrists for about 10 years. After struggling through the trial and error process of choosing bipolar medications that helped me balance my symptoms I started seeing Dr. Campbell who finally got it right! I always look forward to seeing her as she is always pleasant, enthusiastic about my progress and is so knowledgeable about the many things that I struggle with (ED, substance addiction, bipolar). I have changed a lot since I first started seeing her and I could not have done it without her help. If you are feeling frustrated with doctors that treat you like just some other patient to throw medication at- go see her! She has been kind and compassionate from day one. She is the nicest psychiatrist I've ever had, period!
It should be more forthright that at the present time she is not accepting insurance. She is cash only. This would prevent patients from wasting time and transit fare to find out in person. However she is very friendly and great bedside manner.
I really appreciated how comfortable Bethany made me as this was my first time seeing a Psychiatrist. She was very professional and I was relieved to get an answer to the problems I have been facing. This really helped me get some clarity in my life.
She is absolutely amazing! Brilliant, kind, and goes out of her way to help her patients. Definitely recommend.
So warm and welcoming
