First time going to a psychiatrist and he blew it out of the water (which was beyond relieving as I was worried all these reviews were a bit puffed up). He was super nice, friendly, and understanding, as well as patient with everything I had to say. Highly recommend him.

My wife and I were able to see Dr. Paul together, as we requested, so were impressed right away that he was able to accommodate us in that way. We arrived promptly at our appointment time and were seen right away...maybe a 3 minute wait in his little waiting room. While Dr. Paul is a little quiet, he is certainly knowledgeable and conveys his message in the appropriate way. Both my wife and I felt comfortable with him right away. We spent an hour speaking with him, which was our full allotted time, and are satisfied with the results. We left his office receiving everything we were hoping for, from treatment advice to medication. In all, I would absolutely recommend Dr. Paul to anyone out there who is troubled or having trouble battling their demons! It was our first time speaking with someone and we could not be more glad that we did!

Dr. Ivanov is an excellent psychiatrist. I've seen five psychiatrists in the last year & a half trying to find someone who would treat my social anxiety as serious as I feel it. Dr. Ivanov is that psychiatrist. He treated me as if I was his first and only patient. He listened to me as I explained every detail of my anxiety, the effectiveness (more accurately - the lack thereof) of the medication I'd been prescribed, and we then worked together to figure out a treatment plan with which we were both satisfied. Dr. Ivanov even followed up with a phone call three days after my appointment just check how I was feeling, and whether the medication he prescribed was working. This man is someone who went into medicine for precisely the reason we hope all medical professionals join the field - to help people.

Doctor was very diligent in asking all the questions to get down to the issues at hand. He made sure I understood all the questions being asked and reassured me that the process takes time and it is normal to feel anxious and scared.

When to see a psychiatrist?

A psychiatrist is trained to diagnose, treat and prevent mental health illnesses. They handle all kinds of mental health issues ranging from panic attacks, hallucinations and suicidal tendencies to disorders like depression, anxiety and bipolar disorders. A combination of medical tests, psychological assessments and patient interaction is used to understand and diagnose.

 

Psychiatrists can recommend the following treatment methods based on the patient’s needs:

  • Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, uses dialogue with patients as a tool to eliminate or control any disabling or troubling symptoms. You can find more information on psychotherapy in the American Psychiatric Association’s website.
  • Medications, where required, to help with stabilizing brain chemistry.
  • Psychosocial intervention is used to transform an individual’s behavior and emotional state. The purpose is to guide the patient into having healthy relationships with the society using nonmedicinal means.
  • Electroconvulsive therapy to treat severe psychosis that accompanies detachment from reality.

Psychiatrist vs. Psychologist

To qualify as a psychiatrist, a person must obtain a medical degree with specialized training in psychiatry. On the other hand, a psychologist has an advanced degree—commonly in clinical psychology—and has experience in research and clinical practice. Psychiatrists, being medical doctors, can prescribe medications in addition to psychotherapy. Psychologists primarily use psychotherapy as their treatment methods. However, some might train in psychological testing and evaluation. Read “Which Type of Therapist Do You Need?” from Zocdoc’s patient blog “The Paper Gown” for more information.
