Holistic and Integrative Psychiatric Consultation: Your first appointment

Your first appointment will probably last longer than you expect, 1½ to 2 hours. Together, we will get a clear understanding of what is bothering you and the path we need to follow. You will get a good sense of how it feels to work with me, as your doctor and partner. You’ll have a good feel for “our chemistry”, an ineffable quality that has an importance I can’t under-rate.

I may order laboratory tests or suggest dietary changes. We may embark upon a course of in-depth short-term psychotherapy. You will benefit most quickly from this thorough consultation that helps us develop a dynamic and in-depth plan of action to bring you to a state of well-being.
