Dr. Velissarios Karacostas has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Wonderful Dr. and person!

I've seen Dr. Karacostas for several years and he is a kind and caring person. I don't feel like I'm just another patient. I feel like I matter and that he genuinely wants the best for me and to be as helpful in facilitating my journey to being productive, calm and happy. He can be counted on and will always return phone calls, even on the weekend!
