Being a psychiatrist for 20 plus years, I have learned that a trusting relationship with a patient is more important than any cutting edge medication. The best medication will become outdated in 10 years or less. But a doctor's compassion will never go out of style.

Diagnosing and treating ADHD should be a personalized process that focuses on your symptoms, needs and goals and this requires specialists to be with you on your treatment journey. Specialists that understand ADHD in and out, including its interaction and co-occurrence with other behavioral health conditions, and know that treatment options and paths vary widely. Our providers are ADHD specialists, trained in our differentiated approach in diagnosing and treating ADHD by Dr. Dave Auluck, our Chief Medical Officer, who has over a decade of clinical experience.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Bakersfield Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Bakersfield has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Bakersfield, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Bakersfield Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
