La Jolla Psychiatrists

If you, or someone in your family, is considering therapy, you may wonder whether you should see a La Jolla psychiatrist, psychologist, or clinical social worker. All three can help you identify emotional problems and offer beneficial counseling, but only a psychiatrist La Jolla is a medical doctor who, in addition to diagnosing mental conditions and offering therapy, can conduct physical exams, order lab tests, and prescribe medication if necessary. (Only two states where there is a shortage of psychiatrists, Louisiana and New Mexico, currently allow psychologists to write prescriptions.)

In addition to attending medical school, La Jolla's best psychiatrists, such as those in our listing of La Jolla Physicians & Surgeons also serve a 4-year residency and study specialties such as addiction, forensic, military, or pediatric psychiatry. The best local psychiatrists in La Jolla are found in our La Jolla psychiatrist directory and offer individual and family therapy and can help with a variety of conditions, from mild to severe, including anxiety, post traumatic stress syndrome, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, depression, and suicidal behavior. Your psychiatrist La Jolla may also order tests such as MRIs or CAT scans as part of an evaluation of your condition and work in conjunction with other mental health professionals who specialize in personality testing and counseling.

Thanks for using La Jolla Blue Book to find local La Jolla information.
