Arthur Chou, Psychiatrist  in Redondo Beach
“My mission is to help you understand yourself. With that knowledge comes the courage and strength to free us from old, dysfunctional patterns of behaviors, thinking, and emotional states.

Arsalan Malik, Psychiatrist  in Santa Monica
“I focus on my patient as an equal and active partner in treatment. I conceptualize psychiatric treatment as a collaboration involving a process of two people thinking and changing what either alone cannot think or change. Overall, I have found medications can be, but are not always a first line choice for the individual. Psychotherapy has been relegated to the backburner as drugs occupy an increasingly pivotal role in patient care. I endeavor to find a middle road of plain old therapy, in addition to medications to help my patients find meaning in their lives and satisfaction in their relationships.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Los Angeles County is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Los Angeles County Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Los Angeles County specialize in age groups (so check for Los Angeles County child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Los Angeles County). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurses in Los Angeles County, or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. Los Angeles County Psychiatric nurses receive training in psychological therapies (such as CBT), building therapeutic alliance with clients and dealing with challenging behavior.
