What is psychiatry?

Traumatic events from your past can have an impact, as can your genetics, lifestyle, and environment. 

The Medical Arts Associates P.S. team is dedicated to identifying psychiatric illnesses so they can give you the care you need. Fortunately, modern mental health care has the tools to restore balance to your emotional well-being. The team checks in with you during regular appointments to monitor your mental health and make any necessary adjustments to your care plan.

Psychiatry can address the many mood disorders, eating disorders, psychoses, addictions, and other disorders that impact how you think, feel, and behave. The team at Medical Arts Associates P.S. uses advanced mental health assessments to evaluate your symptoms and make accurate diagnoses.
