I had a second session with Dr Datta and was thoroughly pleased with his services as he helped me address some painful realities in a gentle and sensitive manner. Truly wish that many more clinicians were trained in the same way, and in fact since I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I am learning so much as I progress towards my own healing.

Dr. Leivent was great! He was focused on how we could work together to get me feeling better, listened to my concerns, and really made me feel cared for while also explaining exactly why he was recommending certain treatments for me. Great doctor and deserves the highest recommendation!

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.

This Doctor is THE BEST DOCTOR THERE IS! I'm not only talking about the professionalism he presents himself with or the quality he assures goes into every appointment with every patient but he is the nicest, most polite, friendly, understanding, truly caring and intelligent Human being and Doctor I (and I'm sure Many others who have seen him) know! I can't emphasize enough that if you want to see a Doctor who truly enjoys what he does - who not only takes the time to hear his patients out but always make sure to educate them on everything he goes over with them or on whether not he's prescribing any kind of treatment he makes sure that there's no learning barriers and constantly assures that the patient is comfortable with what's going on and you can tell he knows what he's talking about. If you just go ahead and look on ZocDoc at his credentials, education, background, Ect and the reviews he's recieved you can tell this is and truly genuine healthcare professional Who enjoys what he does and you can be sure that you will be provided with exceptional and outstanding service when booking an appointment with him… He's always more than willing to help out his patients and always makes himself available to speak with the patient anytime there's a question or concern or even just to communicate anything regarding an appointment/time just to make sure that you're prepared and that you're updated. I strongly suggest that you make an appointment with him, he will not be disappointed and knowing there are doctors like this doctor out there will allow you to leave the appointment feeling confident that you're in good hands!!!!

Dr. Bazzi is very flexible with scheduling and understanding about needing to reschedule or cancel appointments. She’s very timely and is rarely late. Once in a session she’s is a very good listener and spends up to an hour with a patient, and never makes you feel like she wants to be somewhere else.

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.
