Robert Pohl, MD, Psychiatrist in Royal Oak
I believe in evidence-based treatment of depression and anxiety disorders as well as other conditions, such as bulimia and attention deficit disorder and alcohol abuse. As a physician, I prescribe medications for these conditions when it is appropriate. I do believe in prescribing medications for clinically significant conditions, but not for normal reactions to life's situational events. I work with a large number of therapists who refer their patients for medication management, and refer patients for therapy when indicated.
The first interview is a diagnostic interview because it is important both to identify your concerns and determine what is wrong. Subsequent appointments are shorter and focused on how you are responding to treatment.
I have 30 years of experience in psychiatry as both a clinician and as a researcher / teacher. I was a full professor at WSU's School of Medicine. I have over 120 publications, as author or co-author, in the area of depression and anxiety in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
