I believe that the key to effective treatment depends upon a strong collaborative alliance between patient and physician. The difficulties you are experiencing are most likely a combination of physiological and psychological problems.Treatment begins with a comprehensive review of your physical, emotional state and social well being. If you need medication we will discuss the various options. Together we will take into account your unique circumstances and arrive at a personalized treatment plan. Subsequent visits will moniter your response to the medication and help you learn how the medication works.

These are four basic requirements for feeling better: first, you want to understand why you don't feel well; second, you want to do what is necessary to feel better (liking what you have to do isn't necessarily required); third, you are open to the possibility that laughing at the absurdities of life is a really good idea, and four, you don't pay a fortune to expensive consultants in order to disregard their advice. I like to explain why I make any recommendations, and I like to whistle while I work (metaphorically speaking).
