I see patients relatively short term. I'm 77 and not sure how long I will keep practicing. Many patients can get meds prescribed by their PCP after having a consultation or brief treatment with me and I am happy to consult with your PCP or other provider. I am especially interested in treating anxiety and ADHD. I like doing cognitive behavior therapy for phobias, ADHD and OCD, and can coach patients about how to find other kinds effective psychotherapy. Medications have their limits, and distressing symptoms should always be addressed psychologically with or without medications.
Clarifying likely diagnosis and treatment choices can help patients efficiently seek treatment. I am very familiar with psychiatric resources in the Portland area if you want longer term treatment. I can also recommend educational and support resources. I can usually see people quickly because i do not carry a large caseload.
Take a look at my website at benjamincrocker.squarespace.com. I think short term treatment can be effective and supports the patient’s autonomy. When you are old you have to confront the fact that there is only so much time for everybody. I use confidential email a lot to keep in touch with patients.
