Edward Chastka, Psychiatrist  in Wyomissing
“I am a traditionally trained psychiatrist practicing for over 20 years. During this time I became disappointed with modern psychiatry's reliance on the use of medications. I do recognize their usefulness for stabilizing overwhelming symptoms, but I would much rather help patients face symptoms than to medicate them. To do this I use a combination of mind and body techniques, tailored to each patient's individual character and designed to help them overcome symptoms such as anxiety, depression, boredom and frustration.

I specialize in children and adolescents but also works with adults in providing psychotherapy, medication management, consulting, and alternative treatments when applicable. In addition, I also provide ADHD testing. I develop a comprehensive and thorough treatment plan that most importantly is designed to educate my patients on mental wellness.
