Marvin Flicker, MD, Psychiatrist in Los Angeles
Is therapy right for me? If you are hurting, if there are problems in your life related to fear when you shouldn't be afraid, and sad when you shouldn't feel sad, or have doubts about love capability, maybe it's time to find out. That is one of the purposes of doing a psychiatric evaluation. I have been successfully treating people suffering with anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties for many years.
What is the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist? There are many competent psychologists, An essential difference is that a psychiatrist is also a physician.I am able to prescribe medications when appropriate but also recognize the difference between physical and emotionally based conditions, essential to provide proper treatment.
Why is psychiatry and psychotherapy so important? I often think we might as well be asking , why is my suffering important and to whom? It should be important to you and to those in your life who care about you. I hate unnecessary suffering and it is important to me.
