Fit for Duty Evaluations
If you are a student applying for a service academy or ROTC and have previously been diagnosed with a mental health condition, you may need to apply for a waiver. This process requires a psychiatrist to evaluate the student and determine if he/she is mentally prepared/capable of such an undertaking. Our Psychiatrists have served in the Army and know what it takes to succeed. LEARN MORE
Legal Case Review
Some court cases require expert testimony from a Psychiatrist to help evaluate components of the case. Not only do our providers testify for our patients, but we have also been brought in as third-party reviewers for ongoing cases. LEARN MORE
Ketamine Infusion Therapy
An exciting new development for treatment-resistant depression. Ketamine, originally used as an anesthetic, showed promising benefits as an antidepressant over a decade ago. Ketamine acts on a different area of the brain than standard antidepressants, which may explain why people may respond to it when they do not have success with other medications. LEARN MORE
Medical Marijuana
Medical marijuana has helped many people with various ailments. In the psychiatric setting, New York State has approved medical marijuana certifications in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. In order to receive the most benefit from this treatment modality, it is important to find a provider who has the proper training to manage the medication. At Jeff Ditzell Psychiatry, our psychiatrists are not only certified in medical marijuana, they are also qualified Addiction Psychiatrists. This training lends them an added level of expertise to help find the proper course of treatment. LEARN MORE
