Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sowerby Jr "I am eager, anxious and aggressive in treating any person with an emotional illness of any sort. I am aggressive in my treatment of all patients, regardless of their presentation. I believe that a combination of psychopharmacotherapy (medication) and psychotherapy is important, and I therefore strongly urge my patients, regardless of diagnosis, to involve themselves in psychotherapy as well as medication management. I treat children, adolescents, adults and geriatric patients."

in Sayre, PA |
Dr. Sower by is a credit to his profession. He listens attentively, and is compassionate to the patient. He is a doctor I feel truly cares about each individual. I see him about twice a year and I always leave his office very well informed of the latest treatments affecting my disorder
