I treat older adolescents (age 15-17) and adults for non-emergent mental illness
Your 60-90 minute evaluation will include a general screening of mood and anxiety disorders with a patient-centered treatment plan by the end of the visit. This may result in a prescription for psychotropic medication and/or a psychotherapy plan/referral.
As a MEDICAL DOCTOR, I have studied the body and brain extensively. This includes cadaver work in my early training and hospital rotations with physical patients. A PSYCHIATRIST is the gold standard for medications affecting the brain. I work closely with local pharmacies to provide seamless continuity of medication of management.
Working with patients sometimes involves family work. Clear boundaries and goals are needed to provide optimal outcomes. With selected cases, Dr. M can be a short-term resource to work through family conflict.
