Is Psychiatry of the Palm Beaches accepting new patients?
Patients may know that they are suffering from a mental health condition that requires treatment, or they may feel that something is off with them but can’t quite put their finger on it.
Seeing a psychiatrist can provide you with the diagnosis you need to make sense of how you are feeling.
A psychiatrist is focused on the treatment of mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, and bipolar disorder, which are common conditions that are often successfully treated with the use of prescription medication.
Psychiatrists are medical doctors and therefore licensed to write prescriptions as needed to help their patients manage symptoms of mental health disorders.
Patients will typically see a psychiatrist at the recommendation of their family doctor or other medical professional if the doctor suspects that the patient is having issues with their mental health.
Much like any other medical doctor that a patient would see for treatment of a medical condition, a psychiatrist will use their first appointment with a new patient as their opportunity to get to know the patient.
They will ask a series of questions about the patient’s medical history and family medical history, ask about their symptoms, get to know a bit about the patient themselves, and use this information to determine the next steps.
They may want to perform additional medical and psychological tests on the patient to get a complete picture of the patient’s physical and mental state before making a diagnosis and recommending a treatment plan.
This evaluation will help the psychiatrist determine what the correct course of treatment should be.
Different types of doctors have different requirements when it comes to referrals to seek treatment through them.
With a psychiatrist, a referral is required to seek medical care, whether through the patient’s family doctor or some other medical professional who feels that the patient needs the specialized treatment a psychiatrist can provide.
A patient can also be referred to a psychiatrist by another mental health professional such as a psychologist or a counselor if the patient requires medication that they aren’t able to prescribe or if the mental health condition is causing other physical symptoms.
Patients will typically need to make an appointment with a psychiatrist through their family doctor or another medical professional, including other mental health professionals, as a referral is needed.
