Specialties

Dr. Richard Linchitz 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.

One Star

OK Dr. Linchitz, you can knock off posting all of those nice reviews about yourself and your "wellness center". WE WEREN'T ALL BORN YESTERDAY. Why don't you go back to your original career path of phychiatry. Not quite the lucarative racket that you're hoping this one will be, but you can rake in $250 - $300k with lower malpractice premiums.

Dr Linchitz is a very caring doctor, a cancer survivor himself. He truly knows what you are going through. My first visit with him took over 2 hours. I have never spent that kind of time with a doctor before. He took the time to completely understand my diagnosis. The type of treatment he offers is very innovative and not all people are appropriate but he does his best to point you in the right direction.

You either believe in holistic medicine or you don't. The crackpots that wrote those comments (probably the same person) obviously wanted instant results. Dr. Linchitz doesn't take the quick route of pumping you full of dangerous drugs. I am very pleased with his professionalism and I am happy to recommend him to others.

a true healer

Dr. Linchitz is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever met. He endeavors to treat the whole person and not just the presenting symptom. He is a true healer. I have recommended others to him and they have all thanked me.
