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.
My last visit with Dr. Ivanov was like all the rest. Superb. If not for Zoc Doc I never would have found this amazing person.
Dr. Sheppe gave me the answers to questions that had lingered for years. I wish I had asked much earlier. He is clear, coherent, and thorough. Thank you so much!
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.
Too early to tell, but a great start. Attentive, insightful, with a relaxed calm demeanor.
Dr. Salvage is a highly professional and compassionate Psychiatrist that has helped me through some very difficult times. The ease and availability of scheduling appointments is excellent. He has helped me with addiction and all other mental health components that come along with it and his treatment is very comprehensive. I have been to both of his offices (one in Manhattan and the other in Brooklyn) and I feel right at home.
Dr lama is a very pleasant person, this was my first Time seeing a psychologist and I felt so comfortable with her. She helped me so much how to deal with my anxiety.
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.
Can't say enough about such a positive experience. The physician really took the time to listen, ask relevant questions and possessed empathy I don't see often in the medical profession these days.
Great doctor but doesn't take insurance, however he does give you a form to get reimbursed for the visit.
Dr. Gilson was receptive to everything I had to say and answered all of my questions and concerns with no problem. I felt comfortable talking to him about anything and he was very knowledgeable and helpful with my diagnosis. A very friendly, open-minded guy in general :)
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.
