Our Holistic approach:
We believe in integrating nutrition, exercise, supplements,behavioral interventions,self help,psychological therapies and mindfulness into treatment apart from medications to establish a comprehensive management plan.
We prefer a conservative approach avoiding admissions,ECTs or other intense treatments(though few patients do require supervised intesive psychiatric care including ECTs).
Whenever appropriate we do suggest patients to seek psycho-therapeutic help also.
What's a psychiatrist?
Many people are unsure about what exactly psychiatrists do.
Psychiatrists are just like medical doctors who are trained into dealing with mental health disorders after their medical graduation(MBBS).They specialize in diagnosing and treating people with emotional,cognitive and behavioral disorders.
Psychiatrists are qualified to evaluate both the mental and physical aspects of psychological/emotional/behavioral disorders.Depression is the most common reason why people seek psychiatrist's help.
Psychiatrists help people with mental health disorders such as Anxiety,insomnia,schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder,OCD,psychosexual disorders and substance use disorders.
What to expect when you consult a psychiatrist?
Diagnosis and detailed evaluation is very important especially for complex mental health issues.Asking a family member or a friend to accompany you is often helpful to understand your life from a significant other's perspective.
There aren't any laboratory/radiological investigations to understand/diagnose psychiatric problems.Psychiatrist mostly use laboratory investigations and imaging to rule out other medical conditions which might mimic psychiatric disorder.(eg.hypothyroidism)
Psychometric assessments are often helpful to understand a person's personality and to diagnose psychopathology.
After initial evaluation a management plan is devised which often includes psychotherapy sessions apart from taking medications and other lifestyle modifications.
