- Conditions We Treat
With medication management, Dr. Ditzell will monitor the effectiveness of the prescribed medications, as well as the side effects (if any) and weigh the patients’ options. If the medication is not working effectively, adjustments will be made. At the Jeff Ditzell Psychiatry we will sometimes utilize Assurex’s GeneSight test to find medications that will best work for the patient. This is a simple cheek-swab test to match specific medications that will work best based on the individual’s genetics.
During medication management appointments, Dr. Ditzell will ask the patient questions about side effects of the medication as well as overall functioning while taking the medication. The purpose is to make sure the medication is benefitting the patient, while limiting the side effects.
As the number of Coronavirus cases grow, so does public concern. One thing you shouldn't have to worry about is access to your mental healthcare. We are offering telepsychiatry appointments so you can tend to your needs, while staying in the comfort of your home. Don't let COVID-19 get in the way of your progress.
