Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Welby "My goal is to provide a personalized treatment approach using innovative and effective therapies. I am attentive to my patients and we work together to define treatment goals which we use as a guide to therapy. I often work with other members of my patients' treatment team to tailor treatment and help address each persons' unique circumstances. I offer pharmacogenetic testing which examines individual genetic differences and their potential influence on drug response. I am excited to also offer telepsychiatry (video conferencing) through my practice, which increases access to care for those who may have limited time to come into the office.  I am committed to continuously improving my practice and ensuring that there is a trusting partnership between my patients and myself. I enjoy being an active member of the community. As President (2017-2018) for the Connecticut Psychiatric Society, I feel fortunate to be able to advocate for my patients and my profession. "
