This content was provided by Dr. Gay "A behavioral psychologist, Dr. Robin Gay enjoys being a part of the clinical team at Reliant Medical Group, working closely with patients to help them overcome problems and make their care more effective. "I really enjoy working in a medical care setting. I believe if we can affect the behavioral aspect of a patient's problem, we can really have an impact on their overall health." At Reliant Medical Group, behavioral therapy is considered an important part of the process of improving health. Doctors often recommend that patients see a behavioral therapist if they think it will help them with a medical problem. "Many medical problems have a behavioral component," Dr. Gay explains. "So if we can get a handle on fixing a behavioral issue that is causing a problem, patients can really improve. Being able to work in a medical setting allows us to do that." Dr. Gay works with patients who are experiencing chronic pain, who suffer from anxiety, and other issues that can affect their overall health. "Psychologists have some very effective techniques such as guided imagery and relaxation, special breathing techniques and other methods that have been proven to really help people. There are even smartphone apps that many of my patients use on a regular basis." A large part of Dr. Gay's role at Reliant Medical Group will be screening people for the bariatric weight-loss program. "We have a very well-regarded bariatric surgery program here at Reliant Medical Group which has helped many people lose significant weight and dramatically improved their health. Behavioral counseling is a big part of that process whether people decide to have surgery or not." When she is not busy helping patients Dr. Gay enjoys going to museums, reading mystery novels and enjoying nature. She has also enjoyed teaching throughout her career and most recently taught at Columbia University before coming to Reliant."
