Mark R Gloss, Psychiatrist  in Brookline
“I strive to help my patients manage and rise above the daunting difficulties of things like depression and PTSD with as many compassionate and scientifically grounded modalities as possible. A major concern of mine is helping patients who are having difficulty with traditional medication. To further help these patients, I have created a branch in my practice dedicated to a all new treatment known as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Therapy (TMS). This new therapy has been proven effective in patients who have failed to benefit from traditional medication. I am proud to be the first in Boston to offer this treatment.

Michele L Deneys, Psychiatrist  in Newton Centre
“Having trained at Cambridge Health Alliance, I believe in a thorough, thoughtful evaluation & have a conservative approach to prescribing medication. In addition to meeting with both parents and the child/adolescent, I like to speak with other providers, past and present, and school personnel when appropriate, prior to discussing treatment options. While individual therapy and/or medications can be helpful, modifying the child's environment (through parent guidance, family/dyadic work, school accommodations) at times can be equally or even more effective. I work alone and in collaboration with others to provide you & your child what you need to succeed.

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.
