Dr. Gordon Globus, MD

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

SETTING AND EXPERIENCE: I have maintained a half-time private practice of psychiatry in Newport Beach since 1992, after retiring from the UC Irvine Med School. Insurance issues: If you have an HMO, I am not covered; if a PPO I am covered but not a preferred provider. I have a broad experience in psychiatry and while at UCI was variously in charge of outpatient psychiatry, an inpatient program, and psychiatric consultation at UCI Med 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 and try to understand their problems in a collaborative way. The initial consultation lasts around 45 minutes, at which time I will make a provisional diagnosis, formulate, explain and implement a treatment plan. I enjoy the practice of psychiatry. I try to use low doses of medication in order to avoid side-effects. 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.

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 wasgoing 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!

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.
