Psychiatrist For Psychosomatic Disorders
These disorders are typically most perplexing and frustrating for the non-psychiatric physician. Individuals with these disorders end up going for extensive and expensive testing before the absence of a primary medical etiology is determined. By the time the patient gets to the psychiatrist there is a significant degree of frustration and loss of faith in the medical profession on the part of the patient.
Treatment For Psychosomatic Disorders
Treatment entails intensive psychotherapy with a major focus on education and clarification of the underlying psychological processes responsible for the physical complaints. Pharmacotherapy addresses the anxiety and depression that often accompany the physical symptoms.
