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.
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. Inwood is a caring physician with excellent knowledge and a person of compassion. He listens! I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone!
Great doctor but doesn't take insurance, however he does give you a form to get reimbursed for the visit.
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. Wing is consistently one of the most thoughtful and caring physicians. We recommend him highly.
Too early to tell, but a great start. Attentive, insightful, with a relaxed calm demeanor.
Finally a glimmer of light in the search for an expert, knowledgeable psychiatrist who is not a pill pusher and is really concerned about the well-being of his patients. I strongly recommend him.
Very considerate, understood my concerns and explained everything clearly. Highly recommended.
Quite knowledgeable, and thorough physician. Pleasant and inviting environment. Highly recommended.
I was unfortunately late to my last session. Unlike other doctors I have seen in the past Dr. Ivanov was incredibly understanding and flexible. He puts his patients first, ( thanks to his patience) And would recommend him as one of the best doctors I have ever seen in New York. Or anywhere for that matter.
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.
