She is a wonderful listener who tailors constructive solutions for her patients. Her communication is wonderful. You text her directly and she gets back to you within two hours.

Dr. Gislon is a brilliant man who always has insight into my questions. His help has been cricucial over the last several months and in an industry known for "pill-pushers" Dr. Gilson takes the time to talk to those he is serving to ensure he is doing the best he can by them. I highly recommend him!

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.Sharma has helped me change my life for the better. I’ve been to many psychiatrists and no one has ever spent the time and care with me as she has. She really worked with me on getting the right medications and quickly knew when something wasn’t right for me. She’s not the type of doctor that you walk in and out of in 5 minutes. She sits with you and really listens and takes in how you feel and how you feel on the medications.

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.
