Psychiatrists in Oklahoma (OK)

Practice in Psychiatry, Psychiatrist  in Tulsa
“The healthcare field has been undergoing enormous changes over the past 20 years. There are tremendous financial pressures that are forcing doctors to see more and more patients, each for less and less time. My intention is to maintain a setting in which I can work with patients under optimal circumstances. This means giving myself enough time to listen to people, ask important questions and formulate treatments plans that specifically are designed for that patient. I use standard treatments, such as medications and psychotherapy, as well as cutting-edge approaches, such as therapeutic (transcranial) magnetic stimulation (TMS) and Suboxone.

I consider the physical, nutritional, emotional and spiritual components for each client. I am licensed to prescribe medications as part of a treatment plan for my client to manage a mental health diagnosis or to be used as a tool in combination with the therapy process.
