Psychiatry is the branch of medicine focused on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental, emotional and behavioral disorders. Some of the conditions we treated conditions are: depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, OCD, schizophrenia, neuro-cognitive disorders.
Consultation-liaison Psychiatry focuses on the psychiatric care of patients with co-morbid psychiatric, medical and/or neurological conditions, such as cancer (psycho-oncology), cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, transplant, gastrointestinal, OB&GYN (perinatal mental health) and other medical co-morbidities.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is associated with a host of psychiatric and neurobehavioral problems. Moderate and severe TBI can cause personality changes including impulsivity, severe irritability, affective instability and apathy. Mild TBI is known to be associated with affective symptoms, with suicidality, PTSD and major depressive disorde.
At this time, we provide supportive therapy with psychoeducation and motivational interviewing for patients in recovery. We also provide treatment for underlying psychiatric co-morbidities.
Joy in caring for patients, career growth, and work life satisfaction, is at the core of a physician wellbeing.
