Direct Patient Care
With no other physicians or practitioners in the practice, I make a concerted effort to return phone calls and emails promptly myself. I address any questions or concerns from patients myself. I am invested in the success of my patients and an integral part of this is being accessible. I understand how frustrating it can be to be unable to reach your physician in a timely manner. I believe this is especially important in psychiatry given the scarcity of mental health providers.
Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation
I offer a comprehensive 60-minute evaluation with screening for common psychiatric disorders including but not limited to depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, OCD, PTSD, OCD, and psychotic disorders. A differential diagnosis is formulated, and medication recommendations are provided with a detailed review of risks and benefits.
GeneSight Psychotropic Testing
If you have been diagnosed with depression and failed at least one medication, GeneSight Psychotropic is a pharmacogenomic test that analyzes clinically important genetic variations in your DNA. The results of the test can provide valuable information about genes that may impact how you metabolize or respond to certain medications. It does not dictate treatment but can prove to be a useful resource. The test also offers information regarding the metabolism of anti-anxiety medications, antipsychotics, and mood stabilizers.
Telepsychiatry throughout Kansas & Missouri
Meet with a psychiatrist from the comfort of your home! This is especially important today considering the COVID pandemic. I am currently seeing patients throughout the entire states of Kansas and Missouri. All you need is access to a smart-phone, tablet, or computer, and internet access. It is that easy! You will be offered the same services as if you were seen in person.
