It is my pleasure to recommend him highly as both a specialist in behavioral medicine and medical psychology.

Dr. Sheldon was often asked to treat women who were having unusual difficulties…helping women in premature labor stop having contractions without medication, and stopping pain when medication did not work…helped in circumstances of prolonged labor, post-partum depression, anxiety and fear…provided psychotherapy to fathers and couples.

He was of help to my patients as well as to several of my colleague’s’ patients.

Dr. Sheldon’s work is excellent…he successfully treated hundreds of patients…many physicians consistently referred their patients to him over a period of many years. …who could not get results using standard treatment strategies.


Dr. Sheldon was very competent in utilizing hypnotherapy, biofeedback and other medical-psychological interventions in both the treatment of actual medical disorders, e.g. hypertension, chronic pain, spastic colon, sexual dysfunction, T.M.J., etc., and in helping patients to deal with the psychological difficulties that accompany illness, e.g. anxiety and depression.

Eliot Ivanhoe, M.D.

Dr. Sheldon is a qualified, experienced and accomplished Medical Psychologist…his vision was most impressive…an integrated team approach to health care, combining his work in psychotherapy with a specialty in behavioral medicine, with the work of other health practitioners…acupuncturists, nutritionists, and bio-feedback specialists, to create a holistic and effective treatment plan…he would supervise the staff in the use of behavioral modalities, e.g. hypnosis, biofeedback, etc. I recommend him as…psychologist, supervisor and teacher.
