SETTING AND EXPERIENCE: I have maintained a half-time private practice of psychiatry in Newport Beach since 1992, after retiring from the University of California Irvine, College of Medicine. I have a broad experience in psychiatry and when at UCI was at various times in charge of outpatient psychiatry, an inpatient program, and psychiatric consultation at UCI Medical Center.
SCOPE OF PRACTICE: I provide consultation and treatment for a wide range of psychiatric problems. I do not hesitate to refer if I think that another mental health professional has more relevant expertise. I do not typically work with patients under 18 or over 80 years or with dementia, but refer them to specialists in child, adolescent or geriatric psychiatry.
STYLE OF PRACTICE: I am a traditional clinician. I do not rely on testing and questionaires but simply talk with a person, ask questions, and try to understand their problems in a collaborative way. The initial consultation usually lasts around 45 minutes. The great majority of the time I will be able to make a provisional diagnosis, formulate, explain and implement a treatment plan during the initial consultation.
I tend to start with lower doses of medication than most psychiatrists in order to avoid side-effects. (I sometimes even dispense empty gelatin capsules so that you might break up meds to smaller doses than the manufacturers provide.) I will followup by phone or email, if needed, over the first week or two, and consider it part of the initial consultation. Since I maintain only a half-time practice, I usually am able to respond fairly quickly to calls, emails, prescription refills and the like. I have no staff, so there is no one that you have to go through to reach me.
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Globus has been professional and always helpful during our sessions. I have been through some very difficult circumstances over the past year, and he has continued to be my trusted provider, understanding and caring about the issues I was going through. He also helped me with SDI paperwork that I needed during this delicate time to help me avoid financial hardship. I am grateful for the service he has provided to me and continues to!
Dr. Globus has always been extremely professional and helpful alway willing to go above and beyond for his patients. I would recommend Dr. Globb's to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and direct Dr. for psychatry.
It was refreshing to have an appointment with a doctor that looks you in the eyes, listens, and does not rush you out. Dr. Globus was able to make some small changes to my meds with positive impact.
Dr. Globus has been my doctor for years and has been extremely flexible through many tough times (financially and otherwise). I highly recommend him.
