From my point of view, a psychiatric appointment is not only a meeting of an expert with a client, but also a human interaction of two people. One of them is considered to be an expert, but the other one (a client, patient) has a right to be considered a partner in the process, free in his decision making. The role of an expert is to provide the best possible advice, but it is up to a client to make final decisions about his (her) treatment.
My aim is to provide a thorough assessment, then to make clear conclusions about the nature of the problem, and together with the client to design an individually tailored treatment plan, which may include starting or adjusting medication, suggesting psychotherapy intervention, or simply providing a lifestyle advice.
As a physician I have always tried to help to improve my patients’ lives to the best my abilities, and it continues to be the main drive of my work in medicine.
