As a longstanding resource for behavioral health services in the west valley, Pinnacle Psychiatry specializes in a wide range of psychiatric services to get patients feeling healthier than ever before. And while we work hard to offer the most current, evidence-based, and comprehensive treatments available to help you feel better, we also focus on preventative strategies to ensure you stay better for longer.
Helping You Be The Best You
At Pinnacle Psychiatry, our ultimate goal is to address the patient as a whole and consider all the variables that cause us to feel the way we do. Sometimes that means performing lab work to evaluate for general medical conditions that cause or worsen symptoms. Sometimes that means addressing sleep hygiene, physical fitness efforts, and nutritional choices. Sometimes that means addressing the situational stressors that may or may not be within our control. Sometimes that means involving an exceptional, local therapist/psychologist colleague, in addition to our help. Nevertheless, there is always something that can be done to address these proactively and get you back on track!
Analyzing the Chemical and Genetic Sides of Mental Health
Speak to us about analyzing your DNA to determine the most appropriate treatment plan, as well as whether genetic mutations may be playing a role in your symptoms.
While PGT is *not* the Holy Grail of pharmacotherapy and will not tell you "which medicine will work best for you," it can provide useful guidance on metabolic pathways, medication categories, dosages, and even interactions that are genetically relevant in your unique case.
Meds Aren't Always The Answer, But One Of Many Tools
Medication is not always the answer, but for many, it helps bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be! We enthusiastically combine healthy diet, appropriate exercise, nutraceuticals, key vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, as well as potentially utilizing medications. As always, treatment decisions are made on a case-by-case basis, as no two patients are exactly alike.
