Depression

 

Depression and anxiety are one of the most common issues that patient seek medical attention.  Often specific terms such as major depression disorder, bipolar disorder, Dysthymia, obsessive-compulsive disorder or generalized anxiety disorder are provided more as descriptive terms than diagnostic terms.

Conventional medicine will typically prescribe one or more of a number of antidepressant or antipsychotic medications to help patients deal with these symptoms.  Seldom is any underlying cause sought out to help the patient improve.

At Wycoff Wellness we take a different approach.  We utilize a bigger “tool box” in our practice and have a number of specific tests and treatments to improve your mood symptoms.
