Double-board certified psychiatrist Dr. Domenick Sportelli does psychiatric medication checks and provides psychiatric treatment in his work as an ER doctor. In this discussion, MedCircle host Kyle Kittleson and Dr. Dom walk through a psychiatric med check - and explain why Dr. Dom asks certain questions and does each assessment, every step of the way.
A psychiatric evaluation is beneficial (and necessary) for depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, and other mental health issues.
Especially during the COVID 19 crisis in which loneliness and isolation are leading to anxiety and depression, insight into a psychiatric medication check like this can be eye-opening for the many people who may be navigating the mental healthcare system for the very first time.
This session also sheds light on the difference between a psychologist vs. psychiatrist, therapy vs. medication treatment, and what a day in the life of a psychiatrist might look like.
