Like my colleagues, I became a psychiatrist because I want to help people with depression. We know that depression can cause real pain and suffering. And many patients go untreated for months or years.
Depression is a highly treatable condition. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment can begin, the more effective it can be. There are many different treatment options today that did not exist 10 or 20 years ago. These advances and breakthroughs provide excitement and hope to those of us treating patients with depression and other serious mood disorders and mental illnesses.
We have learned so much about depression, other mental illnesses and how the brain works, and this really improves the chances of helping a patient. If you are in need of treatment and therapy for depression, please contact me to set an appointment.
