Two of the most important aspects of a relationship with my patients is that they know how much I care about them and the issues they come to me for. Secondly, I want my patients to know how much I value their trust in me. My patients can count on me to give them my presence, focus and attention as we work through their mental health issues. I believe that a healthy, caring relationship with a doctor that knows you--as a person--is vital to successful outcomes. In order to achieve these values I've chosen to primarily work at two concierge practices in San Diego.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

San Diego 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 San Diego 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 San Diego, 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. San Diego Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.

How to find the right Psychiatrist?

If you're finding it difficult to find the right psychiatrist in San Diego, don't worry--you're not alone. Psychiatrists are highly specialized professionals. They tend to be busy--appointments can be short (e.g. 15 mins.)--and so as a potential client you can sometimes feel lost or confused. Don't let this deter you.

If they are limited in number, expand out your search geographically (Broaden your Search) and see who's available further afield. Use the links in the left nav bar to find the relevant insurance, if you intend to use your health insurance to pay for the provider.

If you're still finding it difficult to find a psychiatrist in San Diego, call or contact the professionals here and ask for a psychiatric referral. You can also call the psychiatric nurses in San Diego as they tend to be affiliated to a network of psychiatrists in their area ( San Diego). Or just chat to them to see if they can help.
