A Human Approach To Psychiatry

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Psychiatrist?

A Psychiatrist is a board-certified doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. Psychiatrists can order medical tests and prescribe medication.

What is a D.O.?

D.O. stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine.

Like an M.D., a D.O. completes four years of medical school and a residency program in their chosen specialty and can prescribe medications and practice medicine anywhere in the United States.

A D.O. receives the same medical licenses as an M.D.

A D.O. has all the same tools to treat you as an M.D.; however, D.O.’s have an extra tool in their toolbox, the Osteopathic approach to patient care.

Osteopathic medicine is based on the belief that the body’s systems are interrelated, and so the focus is on treating the whole person, not just treating specific symptoms or illnesses. This consideration creates a patient-centered, holistic, hands-on approach to diagnosing and providing treatment.

Can medicine help me?
Yes, medicine can be an effective part of your treatment. Please get in touch to discuss this with Dr. Panzone.
What if I feel my medicine is not working?
Medications for mental illness can take time to reach full effect. Dr. Panzone will see patients more frequently at the beginning of their treatment to make sure treatment is going in the right direction and address any concerns you may have.
Do you offer Talk Therapy?

While I do not practice traditional talk or Cognitive Therapy, to develop the best course of treatment for you, I must take the time to get to know you, your stressors, and your barriers, including providing a supportive and interactive atmosphere for discussion. I can also help with a referral for a licensed therapist who can provide traditional therapy who would be a good fit for your situation.

Do you work with other medical professionals?
