Fond du Lac Psychiatry
I have significant issues with the way that psychiatry has become, where patients are rushed through 7-minute med checks and hardly have time to state their most pressing symptoms. I see at most two patients per hour-- without exception. New patients are seen for at least 60 minutes. I have found that most patients appreciate being 'understood' by their psychiatrist, and that having a supportive relationship alone results in a number of benefits. I want my patients to know that we have a relationship that will last for years, and that I will be there for the times when help is needed. I treat patients of all ages and psychiatric conditions. I use medication, psychotherapy, or both, depending on the patient's needs and interests and after a discussion about the different options between myself and the patient. My ideal patient is a person who is seeking more than a rush from one medication to the next, who wants to understand why he/she is feeling the need for help, and who wants to be part of the treatment plan.
