What does a psychiatrist do?

Psychiatrists are medical doctors specialising in diagnosing and treating mental, emotional, and behavioural disorders. They conduct evaluations, prescribe medications, and offer various forms of psychotherapy, like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or interpersonal therapy (IPT), to help you develop coping mechanisms and improve emotional well-being.

What question should you ask a psychiatrist?

You can ask a psychiatrist several questions, such as which type of treatment is required for your psychological disorder, whether there will be any side effects, how long treatment will last, and how long they have been practising this. Our psychiatrists in Calicut are well-experienced in answering every question you want to ask.

What are the most common types of conditions that psychiatrists treat?

Psychiatrists treat a wide range of mental health conditions that include depression, bipolar disorder, cyclothymia, anxiety and stress, panic disorder phobias, eating disorders, anorexia nervosa, and personality disorders. You can consult our psychiatrists in Calicut at Aster MIMS to treat these problems with effective solutions.

When should I consider seeing a psychiatrist?

You should seek support from a psychiatrist if you are experiencing emotional distress, difficulty functioning in daily life, frequent behavioural changes, irregular sleeping, and unbearable stress or anxiety. If you cannot figure out the main cause, you can consult our psychiatrist in Calicut for better guidance.

How does a psychiatrist decide on a treatment plan?

A psychiatrist follows a procedure to develop a treatment plan. First, they assess the patient's symptoms, medical history, and overall functioning. Then, they perform psychological tests using standardised criteria. Finally, they create a personalised plan involving medication, therapy, or a combination of both.

Will a psychiatrist help manage side effects during treatment?

Psychiatrists provide support for several side effects such as mood disorders, anxiety issues, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), eating disorders, schizophrenia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). They offer a complete range of solutions to make patients feel relaxed during and after the surgery.

What documents should I carry on my first visit to a medical oncologist?

While visiting a medical oncologist, you should have all your crucial health documents, such as past diagnoses, surgery reports, lab results, X-rays, CT scans, etc. However, if you have an ongoing medication prescribed by any doctor, you should bring prescriptions as well for better clarity of your health issue.

How should I prepare for my first visit to a psychiatrist?

When visiting a psychiatrist for the first time, you should know your symptoms and concerns to discuss, prepare questions to clear your doubts, and take all the necessary medical records along with you. Our psychiatrists in Calicut can help you understand what’s required in the first meeting.
