I believe in doing a thorough psychiatric evaluation that involves the physical and mental aspects of a patient. I believe in holistic treatment meaning psychiatric treatment is not just about medications but a healthy lifestyle that includes eating a balance diet, exercise, getting good sleep and psychotherapy. I often incorporate checking for vitamin deficiencies which can be treated easily with supplements, checking for infections that can cause fatigue and genetic testing that tells me what meds to use and not to use so the patient does not feel like they are being experimented on. Education is key so the patient feels informed and is part of the process of getting them to feel better.
