I cover all psychiatric diagnoses ADHD, anxiety, major depression, bipolar schizophrenia, eating disorders and addiction medicine , opiate dependence among others.
I also address functional psychiatry addressing underlying vitamin and micronutrient deficiencies that If not addressed could be responsible for perpetuation of or lack of adequate response of mental illnesses to the various treatment modalities available currently.
