Psychiatry is a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor (an M.D. or DO.) Who specializes in mental health, including substance abuse disorders. Psychiatrists are qualified to assess both mental and physical aspects of mental health problems. People seek psychiatric help for many reasons. Problems can occur suddenly, such as panic attacks, frightening hallucinations, suicidal thoughts or hearing a "voice". Or they may be more long-term, such as feelings of sadness, frustration, or anxiety that may never arise or problems with work, which may make daily life seem distorted or out of control. With the help of experienced doctors from South Apollo Hospital, we provide advanced treatment to this type of patient.
