What can a psychiatrist do for me?
A psychiatrist is a licensed medical professional that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of mental illnesses and psychological problems. Psychiatrists are not only trained to diagnose and manage mental disorders, but also provide psychotherapy. Certain specializations within psychiatry require additional years of training and qualification. Within the profession, each psychiatrist has specific areas of interest and specialization and has the skills to provide treatment from multiple approaches.
What will happen during my first appointment?
Dr. Khmurets will meet with you for an extensive interview and psychiatric evaluation in which she will gather information such as your history, symptoms, and family dynamics. Within this first session, you and Dr. Khmurets will then determine the best plan of action to move forward.
Will my treatment be kept confidential?
We will not reveal any information to any third parties unless you have signed the Authorization to Disclose Information form. If we believe that a child, elderly, or disabled person is being abused, we must file a report with the appropriate state agency. In some instances, we must report past physical or sexual abuse of minors.
What if I have an emergency or an urgent situation comes up?
If you find yourself in the midst of an emergency, immediately call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. If you have an urgent situation please call our office. We will return your call within 24 hours.
