Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Segal "Every person and every family is unique.  It takes time to recognize all the important factors in an individual case.  The first session is called the "Psychiatric Evaluation", but the assessment continues and the diagnosis is refined throughout the course of treatment.  Psychiatric diagnosis is a man-made phenomenon based mainly on symptoms- which symptoms, how long they have lasted, how severe, and how much they have interfered with functioning.  Treatment of symptoms alone however, may miss the cause of the problem andso there is no substitute for a careful evaluation over timeMedications can be a helpful part of psychiatric treatment but rarely are medications the whole answer or the miracle cure.  Individual response to medicine is highly variable.  Non-medical approaches, including individual/family psychotherapy and lifestyle or environmental changes, are often essential parts of treatment."
