Nevada Family Psychiatry is not currently accepting new clients.
My name is Jay Somers. I am a master’s trained MEDICAL PA practicing in psychiatry and mental wellness for the past 22 years. I specialize in treating a whole host of disorders that stem from low neurotransmitter levels, namely serotonin and dopamine. At times I prescribe commonly used anti-anxiety/depressants that can be useful for short or long term depending on the situation. However, I look at the whole body and many times naturally restoring the normal function of the brain resolves the need for prescription medication with the advantage that It is extremely effective with none of the downside of prescription medication.
Depending on the needs of the client I also use genetic labs to personalize prescription medication treatment (these are often covered by Insurance). I am well prepared to evaluate and treat mood disturbances, depression, anger, anxiety, obsessions, attention deficit issues, psychosis, and psychiatric aspects of medical illness, like chronic pain.
Because it's about YOUR quality you have to want to seek help and want to change something that is affecting your life negatively, I am ready to help. I am in a currently in a Doctor of Science program and Past President of the National Association of PAs in Psychiatry.
