Medication Management

Our board certified psychiatric team has over 50 years combined experience of medication management for children, adolescents and adults.

Medication can be helpful to some patients

While our practice offers psychotherapy and psychological testing diagnostic services, medication management has tremendous value in the treatment of mental illness. Our psychiatrist and psychiatric nurse practitioner work to education their patients on the benefits and side effects of medications and empower them to make the most education decisions. We will discuss the options with you and education you on side effects and timelines you should expect to experience positive results.

We believe medication should be part of a comprehensive treatment plan that can include psychotherapy, nutrition and other wellness techniques. Patients are encouraged to collaborate with their providers and contact them immediately if they are not feeling the intended benefits of their prescriptions.

GeneSight Genetic Testing

Our practice offers GeneSight genetic testing. This type of testing is administered by swabbing the inside of the patients cheek. The swab is then sent to a lab where the the patient’s genetic profile is developed allowing our staff to prescribe medications that work best for the patient. Results come back within a few weeks and the best part is, it’s covered by almost all insurance plans.
