The first step in treating psychiatric illnesses is a comprehensive and insightful evaluation which focuses on the symptoms you are experiencing, current and past life difficulties, and an accurate diagnosis. This is critical in choosing the right medication, when indicated, and providing a sound plan to relieve your suffering.
Medication, when chosen carefully and adjusted according to the needs of the patient, can be an essential part of treatment leading you to a happy and productive life. As a Psychiatrist in Woodbridge, VA and Falls Church, VA, (near McLean, VA) I am dedicated to meeting your needs.
I now am able to provide video sessions. "Tele-medicine" allows the patient to stay at home and use a computer or even a smart phone. The initial session (the evaluation) is done in my office, but follow up sessions can be done remotely. I have many patients taking advantage of this convenience, and it is working well.
