Medication is sometimes a crucial component of treatment in psychiatric disorders. Since different treatments work for different conditions, effective care begins with a comprehensive evaluation, education about treatment options, and a shared decision making process to determine an optimal path to follow.
Our psychiatrist has expertise in the coordination, monitoring, and adjustment of medications for the treatment of psychiatric conditions. She brings a wealth of experience and a commitment to the individual needs of children, teens, and adults, including using a collaborative approach to helping parents determine when and how medication could be a part of a child's treatment plan.
Our office does not allow visits from pharmaceutical salespeople because we rely on scientific information, not marketing, to decide what treatment is best for you. This policy also means that we don't provide drug samples. "Free" drug samples cost you money. Samples are only available for the most expensive, most-promoted drugs, and are a tactic to get you to use drugs that may not be the best therapy for you.
We are available for diagnostic evaluations, second opinions on the use of a particular medication or diagnostic clarification, medication taper and discontinuation protocols, and ongoing medication management in the treatment of children, teens and adults. Let us know how we can help.
