"*Accepting new patients* Compassionate, non-judgmental and individualized care is what I believe in. Good mental health treatment is a partnership between a doctor and a patient towards achieving the best possible outcome. I have worked in different clinical settings before transitioning to private practice which gives me the time and flexibility truly needed to address a person's mental health needs. I like to look at the big picture and go to the root of issues rather than superficially treating symptoms alone. This approach has led to wonderful clinical outcomes. I look forward to working with you. I see patients 18 and older. "

Alzheimer's (Dementia) Psychiatrists
A progressive neurodegenerative disease, Alzheimers Disease slowly destroys an individual's memory, judgment, cognition and eventually ability to function. It represents an enormous burden on victims of the disease and their family alike.

Alzheimer's is characterized by memory loss, language deterioration, impaired ability to mentally manipulate visual information, poor judgment, confusion, restlessness, and mood swings.

Alzheimer's usually begins after age 65, but its onset may occur as early as age 40, appearing first as memory decline and, over several years, destroying cognition, personality, and ability to function. Confusion and restlessness may also occur. The early symptoms of AD, which include forgetfulness and loss of concentration, can be missed easily because they resemble signs of natural aging.

If you're looking for help for a friend or mother or father with alzheimer's in Lake Forest or for a Lake Forest alzheimer's psychiatrist, these professionals provide alzheimer's help, alzheimer's therapy, alzheimer's counseling and alzheimer's treatment. They include alzheimer's psychiatrists, alzheimer's psychologists and alzheimer's counselors. Psychiatrists can help with testing for alzheimer's or diagnosis of alzheimers in Lake Forest. They work with alzheimer behaviors in Lake Forest and follow alzheimer's research. Psychiatrists can provide support for family members and carers of alzheimer's patients in Lake Forest or direct you to local alzheimer's resources.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Lake Forest is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Lake Forest Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Lake Forest specialize in age groups (so check for Lake Forest child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Lake Forest). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Lake Forest, or mental health nurse practitioners, perform many of the same functions as a psychiatrist. This includes diagnosing mental illness and prescribing medication. Lake Forest Psychiatric nurse practitioners also act as a therapist, helping patients with depression, anxiety and suicidal individuals, as well as other conditions that can be remedied with counseling.
