The psychiatrists at Shier Private Practice offer FDA approved and empirically supported medications for depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, and other mental health conditions. During your initial visit, if indicated, your doctor will discuss various medication options and collaborate with you in the decision making process of choosing the right medicine. Many psychiatric medications can take up to 3-4 weeks to reach full effect. After the initial evaluation, medication management follow up sessions generally last 20-25 minutes and are scheduled every 1 to 3 months (maximum) in most cases for appropriate medical monitoring. If your symptoms are complex or severe, you can request to meet with your doctor more frequently until you start feeling better.
