Dr. McEldoon's Care Philosophy

Effective treatment may require multiple simultaneous treatments. I use evidence based therapies such as the TMAPs whenever possible. I work with your primary care physician because certain medical conditions such as thyroid disorders and steroid side effects can present themselves as psychiatric disorders. Difficult disorders such as chronic refractory schizophrenia usually require multiple trials. Some disorders such as dementia can only be improved somewhat.
