Announcement icon The vast majority of our visits our online video sessions anyway, as we have been doing this for seven years serving all of both FL & SC!
Many patients have not seen results from previous providers, or worse, received harmful care. They find my approach to biological and functional psychiatry appealing. I explain their symptoms, treatment options, and risks/benefits/alternatives "better than any provider has before" and I "think outside the box". We seek the primary CAUSE of problems via a holistic approach; rather than just prescribe powerful psychotropic medications for SYMPTOMS via a trial-and-error method too commonly seen in this country for our level of knowledge and experience. "He treats me like a person and not a disease" is what I enjoy hearing the most.
We offer online Telebehavioral Health treatment (virtual doc on demand) as well as addiction counseling, biological basis for illness, and rule out often missed causes of behavioral changes including heavy metal toxicities, medications prescribed by other providers, polypharmacy, dose-response, have a infusion room, and much more.
Give us a try and seek the results you know you deserve. Try Alternative Psychiatry and Be Well!
