Psychiatrists are medically qualified doctors specializing in psychiatry. They are graduates from medical schools, who complete their education with a focus on assessing and treating mental health conditions and disorders. They are qualified to prescribe medication for mental health conditions, apart from providing treatment through other approaches such as counseling and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
Unlike other mental health professionals, a psychiatrist is qualified and certified to prescribe medicines for the treatment of mental health conditions. Psychologists and therapists cannot give medicines to their patients. Psychiatrists are qualified doctors who have studied in medical schools, whereas therapists and psychologists are certified by the specific governing bodies to provide counseling to the patients. Some mental health conditions require treatment from both the psychiatrist and the counseling therapists, which is determined during the course of the treatment.
If you don’t feel like yourself for a considerable amount of time, are overwhelmed by life’s situations to the level that day-to-day functioning is a major problem, are facing addiction issues, or have other serious mental health concerns; that is when you should consult a psychiatrist. By assessing your particular condition, the doctor may prescribe medicines, and/or suggest counseling therapy for a comprehensive treatment of your condition.
Mental health conditions that can be diagnosed and treated by a psychiatrist are:
  • Phobias
  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Personality disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Paranoia and schizophrenia
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Depression
  • Dementia
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia
  • Sleep disorders
  • Addictions such as drug or alcohol abuse
During your first appointment, a psychiatrist will carry out an initial assessment of your situation by asking questions related to the specific problem that brought you to them, your general living conditions, and your thought patterns. They will also ask you about your physical health conditions and may want to know about any other issues that may you may be suffering from, such as blood pressure, diabetes, allergies, etc. This gives them a chance to thoroughly assess your mental and physical health conditions, before the final diagnosis, which then determines the medicines that will be used in your treatment.
Yes, at DocVita, our psychiatrists do provide an official prescription, through which you can take your medicines from the pharmacy.
Online psychiatric consultation and treatment, is as effective as the offline version. In fact, some people may not be able to share in detail their thoughts, fears, and conditions if they are sitting in a doctor’s office, but when in a comfortable place, they can share at their own pace in a much better manner.
Most Psychiatrists charge the same for online and offline consultation, especially in today’s times when Covid-19 compelled everyone to deal with their patients through online means. At DocVita, you can book an appointment with a psychiatrist from Rs700-3000 for either a 30-minute call or a 50-minute call, as per their educational and professional expertise and your preferences.
