I believe that a Psychiatrist must do more than write prescriptions and see another patient every 10 or 15 minutes. I see my patients for either 45- 50 minute appointments or for 20-25 minute appointments. Some of my patients have a separate therapist. Many people prefer to have one Dr. who does both the therapy and the medication. There are not many of us left, but I am one of those psychiatrists that still does both.
