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'm in recovery from alcohol and substance abuse. I work a program that relies heavily on a religious belief. Seeing Dr Chen weekly has helped me understand that my recovery journey has been a gift and to not get to caught up in how I recover but simply enjoy being in recovery . That their is no " one way" . I have seen him for our talk therapy sessions every week of my two years now in recovery and it helps me tremendously to be able to talk openly and honestly about things I don't feel comfortable talking about in my program.
I was referred to Dr. Chen by my psychologist, and have had a great experience with him. I am currently in recovery, and he listened to my concerns about certain medications I was on. We were able to develop a plan based on my needs and concerns, and I have felt well ever since. I was able to get right in to see him when I needed, and find him to be very kind and compassionate. I plan on continuing to see Dr. Chen as my primary psychiatrist.
Thank you for your kind review. I very much appreciate you taking the time to share your positive experience with others. I do try to understand each patient's individual concerns and arrive at an appropriate plan. I am always pleased to hear that my care has made a difference in a patient's life. Thank you for letting me know that I have helped you. I wish you peace and good health in 2015!
When I mentioned that I grew up in a household witnessing domestic violence, Dr. Chen's immediate and only response was that this was common in my part of the country. Very callous. He also asked me my salary on numerous occasions when I had made it quite clear that this had no bearing on treatment since I have more than adequate insurance and paid my co pay at the time of the visit. Having read the above, please make your own judgement about this doctor.
