Psychiatrists in Massachusetts (MA)

Joy Dana Riskin, Psychiatrist  in Brookline
“I am a psychiatrist in private practice for over 20 years, treating patients by integrating psychotherapy, psychoanalysis and, when indicated psychopharmacology. As a physician, I am able to evaluate patients with symptoms which may be medical or psychiatric in origin, understanding the mind-body connection. I see a broad range of patients, some suffering from major mental illness to those healthy individuals seeking to learn more about themselves. A major focus of my private practice is working with college and graduate students. I see students as young as seniors in high school and consult to parents of college age students around the country.

Cuneyt Iscan, Psychiatrist  in Newton
“I am currently accepting new patients. I do provide individual psychotherapy and psychoanalysis in my practice for number of years besides provision of psychopharmacological treatments. I believe that my experience with therapy helps me to provide more balanced approach between these options. In terms of waiting time, I accommodate to patient's needs and try to come up with a time as soon as possible. After initial evaluation visit, I may ask patient to return sooner for further evaluation. I see patients typically more often during this phase and try to come up with a mutually agreed upon approach.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Massachusetts (MA) is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Massachusetts (MA) 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 Massachusetts (MA) specialize in age groups (so check for Massachusetts (MA) child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Massachusetts (MA)). 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 Massachusetts (MA), or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. Massachusetts (MA) Psychiatric nurses receive training in psychological therapies (such as CBT), building therapeutic alliance with clients and dealing with challenging behavior. Importantly, they are trained to administer psychiatric medication (or 'psychiatric meds') and, in very limited ways, to prescribe meds.

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on meds so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
