Wait time for the visit was very short. I was taken exactly at my appointment time. I was surprised to seethat others were only in for about 15-20 mins. And that’s exactly how long mine was. There is a little dog but sadly when i went it was sleeping. Dr. Albeheary was very respectful and listened to everything I had to say. And would only insert her judgement where she best felt it belonged.

Dr. Albeheary was great, she listened to my concerns and made suggestions. It felt like she was truly guiding me to the best solution for what I've been feeling. There was a bit of a wait time but I did see that when someone said they were running behind they made sure to get them in next. Personally, most doctors I've been to I've waited between 30-60 minutes so that feels pretty normal to me. All in all very happy with my first appt and will be back in a few weeks.

I had two appointments with Dr. Albeheary and waited almost two hours past my appointment time to be seen the first time, and 90 minutes to be seen the second time. I understand that some days, a doctor may be running behind - hence, why I tried out a second appointment, but it seems like that is the status quo in this office. Her bedside manner is fine, it just is pretty clear that this office runs like a business and not a doctor's office. If you feel compelled to see this doctor for any reason, I recommend coming an hour later than your appointment says if you value your time at all.

Dr. Albeheary is great at her job, and her pup is so cute! For people looking for therapy, it is not her job to counsel you through trauma (although she did provide some insightful knowledge on my constant struggle with anxiety) however, she got me back on meds at a lower dosage as a previous doc that will hopefully lead to a decrease in anxiety. Will continue to see her.

It seems like everything about Dr. Albeheary's office is designed to induce anxiety. The waiting room is far too small and you're elbow-to-elbow with other patients for sometimes up to an hour. Once you actually get to see the doctor, she's sitting behind a giant marble desk like a queen while you sit in an uncomfortable chair on the other side. The care itself was extremely impersonal. She only asked a few general questions before writing prescriptions and sending me out 15 minutes later. This style may work well for some people, but I would prefer a doctor who discusses all treatment options and develops a comprehensive plan for recovery rather than just pushing pills.

I went for a first patient appointment last week. I will admit that I was a bit frustrated as there was quite a wait as Dr. Abelheary was a bit behind. I had an appointment following this one that I could not miss, and I even threatened the office staff that I was going to leave if I wasn't seen soon. I was just about to grab my stuff and leave when I was then told she was ready for me. I am SOOOOOOOOOOO glad I stayed. My last experience with a Psychiatrist was not a pleasant one, and this was a complete 180. I felt listened to, and cared about. She truly made me feel like she was going to be an active part in regaining control of my life, and I left her office feeling very grateful. Dr. Abelheary provides a gentle, empathetic and friendly approach to Psychiatry. I definitely would recommend!

The wait is well worth it. Dr. Albeheary is very knowledgeable and provides reasoning behind any suggested changes. She listens well and is able to provide you with a good strategic plan to get back on track. After not being listened to at a previous provider, Dr. Albeheary was a breath of fresh air.
