Specialties

Dr. Phillip E Balfanz has the following 2 specialties

  • Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
  • 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 didn't need to be committed.

After I was court-ordered into a mental health "crisis center," he was in tune enough to realize that I had a medication problem and wasn't allegedly suicidal. One of the psychiatrists that he worked with had over-medicated me when all I needed was a few days with a simple anti-depressant. All I have is plain, old depression and the other Dr. had prescribed medication that also treated bipolar condition and seizures. Dr. Balfanz recognized this and had me out in 24 hours without a court-ordered release. Dr. Balfanz is incredibly good in assessing various medications and their reactions with each other.
