At McLean Pavilion, we work with you one-on-one, using a full neurologic and medical diagnostic work-up along with other necessary medical tests to determine the most successful psychiatric treatment plan for you. This commitment to examining the biological as well as the emotional components of your illness ensures that our team explores every avenue in searching for effective solutions.
Both the diagnosis and treatment plan take into account a patient's previous medical and neurologic history. Special attention is paid to stress management, fitness and diet.
