Specialties

Dr. David May 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.

Dr. May

I've had the pleasure of working with Dr. May for a few years now, and I consider myself lucky to have him in my corner. He's a voice of reason in my life, a guide who has helped me through rough patches, and overall just a deeply compassionate and competent confidant and advisor.

My Thoughts on David Scott May M.D.

I have seen David for perhaps 2-3 years. I was referred to him by another of his patients and friend, because my previous psychiatrist retired. My issues are primarily anxiety, depression and sleeping. He meets with patients out of his funky house in the hills above West L.A. It is a very comfortable environment. He is well educated and very smart, I think a Yale grad. He is usually pretty punctual, takes copious notes, and his both a good at listening and making suggestions. David is a bit on the pricey side, does not accept any insurance, will provide a super bill. I use a different person for most of my psychotherapy, and David for primarily medicine. On scale of 1-10, I would give him a 9 to a 9.5. He is worth it if you can afford him. I would suspect that most of his client base are wealthy west l.a./ valley professionals, entertainment or successful business people. David I sense, does this truly for the love of psychiatry, and seems to really enjoy what he does.
