Initial psychiatric interviews usually last about 60 minutes. We focus on the difficulty that brought you to our office and evaluate your signs and symptoms. The evaluation includes the use of standardized psychiatric rating scales. We explore potential root causes of your condition, looking a generational factors, childhood and family issues, and stress or trauma in the present.
We use a multidimensional for understanding your problem. Problems of living can be understood from 4 points of view: (1) bio-medical, (2) psychological, (3) social or situational, (4) spiritual. Our office is unique! We address all four.
More than 50 psychiatric medications are FDA approved for use in the US. In addition, there many over-the-counter preparations that are also used to address psychiatric problems.
