Our doctors are trusted partners helping to solve complex neurological and psychiatric problems. We are specialists in the intersection between psychiatric and neurological disorders, such as mood changes in epilepsy, behavior changes in dementia, or sleep changes in patients who have had brain injury. Because of our expertise, we’re often sought after for second opinions, medication management experience and conversion disorder consultation.

All new patients are seen for one or more initial consultation appointments to review their psychiatric treatment history and gather information from significant others, psychiatrists, therapists and primary care physicians. This is an opportunity to discuss treatment options in detail and to collaboratively establish an initial treatment plan.
Several psychiatrists at SeattleNTC also provide ongoing general psychiatric care and medication management.
Most patients referred to SeattleNTC are taking one or more psychiatric medications to help manage depression, mood swings, anxiety and other symptoms. The SeattleNTC psychiatrists are comfortable with less commonly used medication options such as MAOIs and TCAs and provide expert guidance to manage a patient’s medications while undergoing any other treatment, often in close collaboration with the referring psychiatrist or other prescribing physician.
As experts in psychopharmacology, we can also provide second opinions about medication management.
