Medication Management


Following a comprehensive evaluation with one of our psychiatrists, you may be prescribed medications. These drugs work by interacting with particular sites in your brain found to be involved in various psychological and physiological functions.  As a result, your overall emotional and physical health will improve.

Our Team Will Help Find The Best Medication Management For You

The physicians at AMHC will work with you to find the best medication and try to minimize any side effects that may arise as a result of your treatment. We see our patients frequently and consider the ongoing risk-benefit ratio of the medications that we prescribe to you.

We believe that this is the standard of care you deserve.
