Psychiatric Evaluation

The Elevate First Visit, or psychiatric evaluation, is a comprehensive medical history, taking into account your past experience with psychiatry and psychology, medical problems, and other stressors that may be contributing to your symptoms.  At Elevate Psychiatry, we pride ourselves on creating a treatment plan that includes lifestyle medications, diet, exercise, herbal remedies, and, if needed, over-the-counter and prescribed medications.  Typically, our Elevate First Visits will span 60 minutes.


Medication management

Elevate Standard Visits typically consist of 30 minutes of medication management.  We used the latest evidence to guide your medication choices, making sure to limit side effects while alleviating your symptoms so that you can enjoy your life.  We pride ourselves on using complementary and alternative medications as well as limiting the use of pharmaceutical-grade agents.


Psychotherapy

During Elevate Therapy Visits, we will explore the aspects of your life that may be contributing to your symptoms.  We use many techniques, including cognitive-behavioral therapy to address automatic negative thoughts; psychodynamic therapy to address deep-seated anxieties; motivational therapy to address resistance to change; and mentalization therapy to give you a new perspective on your problems.

During Elevate Virtual Visits, we use the power of the internet to see patients through HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing software.  This option is ideal for those too ill to leave their house, too far to visit our location, or too encumbered by work to see their psychiatrist during the day.  Our Virtual Visits are similarly priced to our in-office visits, and they may even be covered by your insurance carrier!


Pharmacogenomic analysis is cutting-edge technology that allows your psychiatrist to look at your individual DNA to determine which medications will work best with your body and mind.  As easy as swabbing the inside of your cheek, we will have your results within one week, and you will be on the path to wellness!

MAT is designed to assist you with your sobriety from opioids and alcohol. Strong data has shown that buprenorphine and naltrexone help patients to remain free from drug and alcohol cravings, tolerance, and withdrawal. At Elevate Psychiatry, we work with you to establish a safe treatment plan!

Medication Assisted

Treatment (MAT)


TMS is state-of-the-art, medication-free treatment for those who have not had success with medications for depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, OCD, PTSD, substance use, stroke, movement disorders, ADHD, and other illnesses.  We will soon be providing this revolutionary treatment in our expansion office in Coral Gables!

Esketamine (marketed as the Spravato inhaler) and ketamine infusions have been shown to dramatically reduce suicidal thoughts and depressive feelings. Additionally, ketamine has been shown to decrease pain, reduce OCD symptoms, and reduce PTSD symptoms. We will be introducing both of these treatments at our flagship Brickell location in the near future!
