What happens during medication management?

PivotCare Precision Psychiatry uses a results-driven approach to medication management using the latest precision psychiatry innovations. Your provider looks at you as a whole person with unique biological, social, and environmental factors contributing to your mental health. 

With careful analysis of all these factors and advanced blood testing, including Genetic testing ,  your provider can determine which medications are best for you. This detailed diagnostic process helps eliminate a lot of trial and error. 

For example, most people with depression have to try a few antidepressants to find one that’s right for them. But, with precision psychiatry, you have the best chance of getting the right treatment the first time. 

Along with prescription drugs, your provider may recommend nutraceuticals, natural supplements that can boost your health and support the results of your psychiatric medication. We offer Iv hydration with supplements and Lab testing as well. 

Medication management is available at the practice and through telehealth. Most mental health conditions improve fastest when you have a combination of the proper medication and therapy, so the practice also offers personalized therapy in the office or through telehealth.
