What Do Psychiatrists Do?

A psychiatrist is a physician specially trained in the diagnosis and treatment of mental conditions. They diagnose and prescribe medications and/or psychotherapy to patients with mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder, addiction, schizophrenia, depression, obsessive compulsive disorders, panic attack, to name a few. Cognitive disorders like dementia and learning disabilities are also treated by a psychiatrist. Occasionally, a psychiatrist may refer the patient to a clinical psychologist or to a specialist, like a pediatric psychiatrist in the case of a child with psychological problems. All psychiatrists in our directory are board-eligible or board-certified in psychiatry and have completed a psychiatry residency following medical school.
