Dr. Jason Bennett, MD
(IMPORTANT NOTICES: As of April 2018, I have availability to see new patients for medication consultation, but I currently have no open psychotherapy appointments. If using insurance, please verify coverage prior to visit. I do not provide disability evaluations. I am not contracted with Medicare.) I generally perform an initial evaluation over several sessions, and I do not typically prescribe medications after only one visit. I treat only adults and I do not perform evaluations for 3rd parties (disability, forensic, governmental agency, etc.) My practice as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist is influenced by an appreciation of the unique biological, psychological and social aspects that contribute to emotional well being and/or suffering of an individual person. Biological treatments like medications can be part of a solution but must be used rationally and carefully and are rarely "cures." Insight into the psychology of the individual, especially the hidden parts of thoughts, feelings and behaviors can be invaluable even if hard won in psychotherapy. Attending to one's social environment in concert with the above areas is the final part of effective treatment.
