Specialties

Dr. Anthony Fons III has the following 1 specialty

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

I've been a patient of Dr. Fons for many years. During this time, he worked with me to appropriately diagnose and treat my BiPolar disorder and related alcohol addiction. He worked until we found the right combination of medications and provided a great deal of cognitive therapy which greatly eased my symptoms and improved my quality of life. He also helped me obtain appropriate rehab support to deal with my alcohol addiction, leading to me being clean and sober for the past ten years. I owe him a great deal.
