Dr. Jacob is available by appointment for psychiatric consultation for second opinions for psychiatric medications, psychotherapy and additional treatment approaches to formulate a treatment plan. We also perform chart reviews, assessing testamentary capacity and answer clinical questions related to psychiatric diagnostic formulation. Our evaluation is usually a one- time consultation with recommendations for primary care providers.
Our goal is to encourage practice of personalized medicine directed to address uniqueness of every individual. Referral from primary care provider is required in addition to bringing all available medical records including lab work up and imaging results from last 2years. An ongoing primary care provider for medications and therapist or counselor is recommended to address needs such as individual or group psychotherapy. We welcome research opportunities in mental health, psychiatry and behavioral medicine.
