Dr. Taslim Zaman
DOCTOR OF OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE, DO
I am a Psychiatrist and a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO).
A Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine sees the entire patient as an integrated whole, rather than only treating for specific symptoms. Thus, DO’s address conditions from both a lifestyle & medical perspective compared to most physicians who focus often on solely a medical perspective.
The osteopathic philosophy embraces the idea of unity of structure & function through 4 main principles:
- The body is a unit
- The person represents a combination of mind, body, & soul
- The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, & health maintenance
- Rational treatment is based on an understanding of these principles and the interrelationship of structure & function.
Each patient will get a very thorough and comprehensive psychiatric evaluation which will be monitored routinely using scales such as the HAM-D, HAM-A, Young Mania, and others. I will gather your bio-psycho-social history and psychiatric history prior to the first appointment. Because of the comprehensive intake process, this will allow for an efficient and more genuine interaction. We will finish each session with a treatment plan in place. We will address each goal listed in this plan during all the follow-ups. This method will lead to incremental progress that can be monitored.
Research shows that psychotherapy in combination with medication produces the best results. I work closely with my team of therapists at Growth thru Change to provide well rounded mental health care.
