Effective treatment begins with a thorough consultation, and comprehensive psychiatric assessment leading to a correct diagnosis and treatment plan.
To this end, this can usually take a few sessions, requiring a detailed history of your problems and complaints, as well as your family and medical history. As a result, we will work together to figure out what has gone wrong.
My objective is to help each patient develop a firm understanding of the nature of his or her problem and be an active participant in treatment decisions.
Moreover, I am often asked to provide a consultation by a patient or colleague for a second opinion of a treatment already in place.
Many patients are referred medication by another mental health practitioner. Consequently, I offer integrative care if you are already in treatment elsewhere.
Individualized and compassionate.
Furthermore, if we decide that medication would benefit your treatment, we will carefully consider treatment options and possible side effects. Accordingly, before choosing your medication regimen, we will engage in a detailed discussion and risk/benefit analysis.
