My vision of care includes identifying strengths, weaknesses, unique abilities and challenges of the person. This helps me to develop a comprehensive individualized plan in an integrative holistic model of care. I like to follow evidence based treatment approach. As every person’s need is unique, I try to develop a plan of care which best addresses this need and it ranges from just talk therapy to talk therapy plus medication management or only medication management.

I am the only physician fully trained and Board Certified in both Psychiatry and Neurosurgery. I think that it is important for a physician to understand that each human person is unique and the result of a melding of Brain, Mind, and Spirit. I see patients that have primary Psychiatric disease and those with neurological disease manifesting psychiatric symptoms. Patients that have a neurological disease with psychiatric symptoms need to be treated with full understanding of what brain areas will and will NOT respond to various medications. My practice employs both medication management and Neurologically informed psychotherapy.

Alzheimer's Psychiatrists
A progressive neurodegenerative disease, Alzheimers Disease slowly destroys an individual's memory, judgment, cognition and eventually ability to function. It represents an enormous burden on victims of the disease and their family alike.

Alzheimer's is characterized by memory loss, language deterioration, impaired ability to mentally manipulate visual information, poor judgment, confusion, restlessness, and mood swings.

Alzheimer's usually begins after age 65, but its onset may occur as early as age 40, appearing first as memory decline and, over several years, destroying cognition, personality, and ability to function. Confusion and restlessness may also occur. The early symptoms of AD, which include forgetfulness and loss of concentration, can be missed easily because they resemble signs of natural aging.

If you're looking for help for a friend or mother or father with alzheimer's in Austin or for an Austin alzheimer's psychiatrist, these professionals provide alzheimer's help, alzheimer's therapy, alzheimer's counseling and alzheimer's treatment.
