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.

Dr. Ozbay was incredibly patient with me. He really took the time to listen to all my concerns and walk me through the available treatment options. I highly recommend him for anyone seeking quality care in the city, especially those who have tried multiple treatments in the past without much relief. I'd also add that his E-consult service is very convenient and easy to use, I wish other offices also had a similar service available for initial appointments.

Dr. Inwood is knowledgeable and in-depth. I really can't say enough good things about him. I saw him years ago after dealing with the trauma of a high confilict divorce and now I'm back and he is as helpful as ever in providing a space for me to heal.

Dr. S is the perfect balance of knowledge & academic with kind, warm, compassionate understanding. His knowledge of the research on medications and therapy is impressive (I've tried to stamp him). Yet he is down to earth and easy to talk to. I like that his office has a private entrance too.

I have been seeing Dr Yarbrough for about a year and I have seen a big difference in my life. Not only did he help me switch my medications and get me on the right track, he has helped through talking and getting me to a much better place. I feel miles from where I was when I first started and I am very grateful to him.

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.
