Are you feeling too stressed? Do you feel like you need to talk to someone outside of your immediate circle about your concerns? Are you dealing with any issues like depression, anxiety, insomnia, trauma or other emotional issues such as relationship difficulties? In any of these issues, a consultation can be useful as the first step towards treatment or simply as a second opinion.
A consultation can help you diagnose a mental health disorder or even get you a second opinion on a prior diagnosis. Patients that seek a consultation for medications can feel assured that they can leave with a prescription after the first appointment if they are in agreement with the assessment.
Such a psychiatric consultation will include a comprehensive evaluation of the psychological, medical, social, and biological causes of a patient’s mental health issues. The assessment will consist of current and past medical and psychiatric history. Also, the psychiatrist will order any necessary laboratory or other further tests. An in depth consultation may take several sessions and often provides the patient with comfort and hope for future treatment.
Eran Feit uses consultation as a starting point for any patient who approaches him to give them a proper understanding of the emotional difficulties they currently experience. He then provides an individualized recommendation for treatment which can include either psychotherapy or medication or a combination of both. You can also consult him to gain more knowledge about your existing medication or get a second opinion about your treatment.
