Professional Statement

NO INSURANCE ACCEPTED OR FORMS COMPLETED.I have been in psychiatric practice since 1974. My treatment approach is to help patients recover or find a sense of healthy self-esteem, peace, contentment and vitality. I utilize psychoanalytic exploration to find the source of personal history that can explain the symptoms that are currently causing pain, suffering, mood fluctuations or anxiety. The treatment involves my empathic understanding of your unhappiness utilizing the theories of intersubjectivity and self-psychology. I am also experienced in the utilization of psychotropic medication as psychological symptoms can be a combination of biological, hereditary, neurotransmitter imbalance as well as environmental and/or family history. (nature vs nurture). And only for those who are interested in that which is beyond self, i am a buddhist who can discuss this with you.

He was kind, professional, and listened to how I was feeling. He seemed very knowledgeable with attention disorders and prescribed me right away! I will be seeing him soon.

I did not keep my appointment with Dr. Scott, because he was listed as a doctor who treats Workers' Compensation patients, but apparently I was on the wrong web site. So I had to cancel, and I had to call Dr. Scott, and I left a message. Well, within 15 minutes Dr. Scott called me back. If I could afford him, he would definitely be my Psychiatrist. Thank you Dr. Scott.
