Practice statement

*Please note that I would like to have a brief introductory phone conversation with new patients prior to your visit. Hello there. I treat individuals and families who are suffering. Often they are still trying to find a diagnosis or have had other treatments. Or, they may know their problem area and want help working on it. Anxiety or depression may bring someone to treatment, but what is going on is usually much more complicated than that. My approach is emotionally honest, warm, and personalized. I use medications when appropriate and also provide individual and couples psychotherapy. I also do 'just medication' with select therapists that I am comfortable working with. I focus on young adult and adult anxiety and mood disorders. We would address symptoms but try to move beyond to understand the root causes. This is as much related to biology as it is connected to relationships, work, and sense of self. I am earnest, combining empathy and collaboration to achieve progress. I want to create an environment where you can express yourself and feel safe being authentic. It is hard to start treatment and to conceive that life can be different. If you are ready, call or schedule an appointment.

After struggling with severe migraine headaches for years and being misdiagnosed time and time again by other doctors such as my PHC or a couple neurologists, I was recommended to Dr. Lohitsa. Upon meeting him for our first visit- I immediately felt that I was in the right hands, I mean within the first fifteen minutes or so of conversation.... I felt like for the first time after seeing quite a few other doctors that someone was actually listening and was responding to my situation as an individual situation rather than just asking generic questions and giving generic advise. He nailed it on our first visit and I now live a better life everyday for it. After about a month from our first visit I followed but by sending him a text message saying that I felt like a better husband, father and friend. He changed my life. As it turns out- the headaches stemmed from depression / anxiety which I no longer struggle with. Absolutely transformative...
