I specialize in helping stressed-out, chronically overwhelmed people (whose daily life activities and decision-making ability suffers due to anxiety and fears ) become surprisingly calm and confident and gain a very different outlook on life - all WITHIN WEEKS of treatment, and POSSIBLY EVEN WITHOUT USE OF MEDICATIONS.
Hello, my name is Dr. Pavel Filimonov, M.D. and I am a Holistic Psychiatrist. I am a bit different because I don't limit myself to just writing prescriptions and using talk therapy. I integrate Eastern healing techniques with the best researched principles of Western medicine, combining these elements to evoke change in the system as a whole--physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. This combined approach helps me to deal with my patients' anxiety , fear and overwhelment in a much more efficient way, markedly REDUCING NEED FOR MEDICATIONS. *IMPORTANT: Insurance pays ONLY a small portion of Holistic treatment.

Anxiety Psychiatrists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a New York anxiety psychiatrist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in New York.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

New York 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 New York 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 New York, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified.
