Psychopharmacologic intervention is appropriate for a variety of psychiatric conditions, including depression, anxiety, attention and impulse related disorders.  Before prescribing a medication, I will conduct a thorough search for biological causes of your suffering, and will work with nutrition, neutraceuticals and supplements to address their cause(s), if at all possible.  I also see patients who are in therapy with non-MD therapists, and consult frequently with medical colleagues about patients with medical illnesses.  Patients on medications need to be checked quarterly; these appointments may be brief, and sometimes may be conducted on Skype.  (NOTE: Skype sessions may not be reimbursed by your insurance company.)
