Psychiatry / Medication
Roots TMS works with compassionate and experienced psychiatrists to offer psychiatric services on-site at our clinic in Long Beach. Psychiatry is the medical practice that focuses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental, emotional and behavioral disorders.
A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in mental health and substance use disorders. The benefit of seeking support of a psychiatrist is that they are qualified to assess both the mental and physical aspects of psychological problems.
Patients who are experiencing mental health conditions often seek out a psychiatrist to diagnose them and prescribe treatment options. The other benefit of seeking help from a pyschiatrist is that they are able to prescribe medications, unlike a psychologist or therapist, who cannot prescribe.
