A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and management of emotional and behavioral illnesses based on the medical model. As such, I treat a wide spectrum of disorders and specialize in general adult (17 years and older) and geriatric psychiatry. This spectrum includes:
- Thought disorders, such as schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders
- Affective/mood disorders, such as bipolar spectrum disorders and depression
- Anxiety disorders, for example PTSD, OCD, GAD, and panic disorders
Further, I do not accept workmen's comp or time-off-work cases. I believe this to be a conflict of interest and counter-therapeutic. Such cases are better handled by an objective third party who is not involved in your mental health treatment.
