- Medication Management
Anxiety is characterized by systematic worry. It can manifest as sensations of nervousness, apprehension and sometimes panic. While such feelings can be normal, a psychiatrist may deem them symptomatic of an anxiety disorder when they persist for a sustained period and impair ordinary activities. In my practice, I routinely diagnose and treat patients with anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety and social anxiety.
As a medical doctor and Board-certified psychiatrist, I have a decade of training underpinning my practice. So whatever you're going through, I'm committed to identify whether medication may be right for you and if so in what form. I will also take the time to educate you about the science underlying any issues you might be facing and how medication might help.
Major depressive disorder is an illness that can be treated effectively with modern medicines. Sadly, this fact is often overlooked, even by people who adopt a science-based approach in other areas of their lives. A tragedy of modern medicine is that we have the tools to manage depression, but only a fraction of sufferers seek treatment. Depression is systematically under-diagnosed and under-treated.
