Many people feel like they are not living the life they want to live and need medication, psychotherapy or both, in order to get back on track. Our work starts with providing thorough initial evaluations in a warm and professional environment. We approach each case with an open mind, developing a relationship in which we can work collaboratively with our clients. The result is a customized treatment plan that meets each individual’s needs.
We always encourage clients to have a current review from their primary care doctor, especially before starting stimulants. We do this in an effort of quality control to make sure issues are not encountered with things like blood pressure, cardio pulmonary disease, arrhythmias, insomnia, etc. In our work together we will evaluate stimulants vs. non-stimulants. If a client has a history of addiction, we stay away from stimulants, especially short acting ones.

I am a clinical social worker in private practice. I have referred many of my clients to Dr. Weiss for medication assessments in helping to treat their depression, anxiety and/or symptoms related to PTSD. My clients consistently report receiving prompt, professional and effective help. He has also been readily available to consult with me and answer my questions not only about medication, but also relevant clinical issues around addiction, nutrition and dual diagnosis. I recommend Dr. Weiss both for his work with my clients and as a collaborative colleague.
I've visited many psychiatrists and Dr. Weiss seems to be the most knowledgeable one I've met. He doesn't talk down to me, nd does a great job trying to explain what the medications are and how they work. When I told 3 previous psychiatrists my meds were affecting me, they all said I was just stressed, but Dr. Weiss was the first one that offered me a real solution (and various options) to my problem. Very grateful for your service.
