The reasons people choose to access health care are unique to their individual experiences. Many patients seek to have relief of symptoms, some seek to enhance current health, others seek to have a trusted advisor, while others are afraid of a potential diagnosis.
This practice is different than the experience you may have had with a doctor in the past. Patients are given the respect and care they expect. You are encouraged to ask questions, and gather information from multiple sources.
People are often embarrassed by their problems and feel as if no one else could possibly understand. Patients also do not want to spend a half a day in the waiting room only to be hurried along. If you are ready for integrated primary care delivered the way it ought to be, then request an appointment (www.MetroMedicalDirect.com)
Medical house calls in Manhattan.
I provide care for people with complex combined medical and psychiatric problems in the privacy of their home, office or hotel in New York City. Patients enjoy the convenience & discretion in discussing their most intimate problems ranging from coping with a new mental illness, sexual issues, addictions, and life transitions.
As a double board certified family & psychiatric nurse practitioner, I use a bio-psychosocial spiritual approach to provide comprehensive, compassionate, confidential care including diagnosing both medical & psychiatric conditions, order and interpret diagnostic tests & prescribe medications in conjunction with psychotherapy, and coaching.
Chronic medical conditions often take a psychological toll. Conversely psychiatric problems can effect medical conditions. Many times an undiagnosed medical condition can produce psychiatric symptoms from depression, anxiety, inattention, sexual dysfunction, and impulsiveness. I use pharmacogenomic testing to personalize pharmacological treatments to reduce the traditional trial & error common in psychiatry.
Psychiatric and Medical house calls that are high tech and high touch. I use an electronic health record & patient portal. Established patients can have web camera sessions, text, email, and electronic prescriptions. I do offer genetic testing to guide therapy. In private practice since 2009.
