A psychiatrist is a specialist who specializes in psychological health, including substance use disorders. Psychiatrists are well qualified to assess and treat both the mental and physical aspects of mental health problems.
Psychiatrists can advise or perform a full range of medical diagnostic and psychological tests which when combined with discussions with patients helps provide a clear picture of a patient’s mental and physical state. Their education and training enable them to understand the complex relationship between emotional health, medical illnesses, genetics and family history. It helps in evaluating psychological and medical data, to make a correct diagnosis, and to work efficiently with patients to develop treatment plans.
