Most people looking to consult a heart specialist are right to go find a cardiologist – and there are nearly 35,000 cardiologists listed on But what should you do before going to your appointment? Make sure you can provide the cardiologist with accurate information: your own medical history, your family history, any recent test results and your current medications list are key.

A complete and honest description of your symptoms will help the cardiologist provide the best possible care, so don’t withhold information from your heart specialist – even small things that seem unrelated, or don’t seem like they’d matter, are important for the doctor to know.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions, especially if your concerns a new and a bit frightening. Those questions help your cardiologist, because good communication is an integral part of your healing process, too, and makes you an active partner in treatment options and planning.

Psychiatrist - who is it and what does it treat? When to contact a psychiatrist? How to prepare for a visit to a doctor at the MEDSI Clinic

A psychiatrist is a specialist with a medical background who deals with the treatment of mental disorders (a group of symptoms and behavioral changes that cause mental suffering and are caused by a violation of the psyche). Such professionals are approached by people who are either aware of their condition as a violation, or feel completely healthy. Psychiatrists are also involved in the treatment of severe pathologies that are dangerous not only for the patient himself, but also for those around him. Therapy is carried out with the use of drugs. An appointment with a psychiatrist should be made when the first signs of pathology are detected. The effectiveness of therapy in this case will be as high as possible. nine0003

Types of doctors

There are the following specializations of psychiatrists:

  • Narcologists. Such doctors treat patients with substance abuse, drug addiction and alcoholism
  • Epileptologists. Such psychiatrists treat epilepsy
  • Gerontologists. These specialists deal with all mental disorders of elderly patients
  • Children and teenagers. Such doctors deal with disorders (autism, etc.) in children and adolescents
  • Criminologists. These doctors are studying the mental state of criminals
  • Somnologists. These specialists deal with the treatment of disorders manifested in sleep disorders
  • Suicidologists. These specialists work with patients suffering from suicidal thoughts and suicidal tendencies

What organs does a psychiatrist deal with?

Psychiatrists study the psyche, identify its disorders and prevent pathologies. nine0003

The doctor's duties include:

  • Identification of persons with mental disabilities
  • Accurate diagnosis of disorder
  • Determination of the causes that provoked deviations
  • Prescribing necessary treatment
  • Case management and rehabilitation
  • Conducting medical examinations
  • Carrying out preventive examinations
  • Hospitalization (including involuntary) of patients with severe disorders
  • Identification of healthy individuals (including those imitating the presence of various mental pathologies in them)

What does a doctor treat?

Psychiatrists treat psychiatric disorders such as:

  • Epilepsy
  • Dementia
  • Psychosis
  • Neuroses
  • Personality disorders
  • Schizophrenia
  • Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases
  • nine0009 Autism
  • Sleep disorders
  • Cyclotomy
  • Manic-depressive syndrome, etc.

Doctors treat both independent pathologies and those that occur against the background of the following diseases:

  • Drug and substance abuse
  • Alcoholism
  • Infectious diseases
  • Vascular pathologies of the brain
  • Somatic diseases
  • Brain tumors
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Intoxication with industrial poisons and drugs

When should I see a doctor?

Individuals who suffer from:

  • Drowsiness during the day and/or disturbed sleep at night
  • Constant feeling of anxiety without objective reasons
  • Complete lack of appetite or persistent hunger
  • Inability to concentrate on even simple tasks
  • Memory disorders (up to its complete loss)
  • Complete apathy
  • Attacks of aggression
  • Panic states
  • Unreasonable resentment
  • Fear and other uncontrollable conditions

Unfortunately, some mental disorders do not allow the patient to objectively assess the situation. The person does not want to see a doctor. In this case, close people should persuade the patient, convince him of the need to receive medical care. nine0003

It is important to make an appointment with a psychiatrist if a person is found to have:

  • Delusional ideas
  • Hallucinations
  • Suicide attempts
  • Frequent attacks of aggression
  • Disorientation in space
  • Missing memory, etc.

You should take your child to a specialist if:

  • Rough behavior
  • Difficulty in remembering information and concentrating
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Complete lack of appetite or constant overeating
  • Addictions of any kind
  • Excessive focus on appearance (weight, figure, claims to structural features of the nose, ears, etc.)

A preventive appointment with a psychiatrist is mandatory for:

  • Registration of a child in kindergarten and school
  • Passing the military medical board
  • Obtaining driving licenses/permits, carrying weapons, etc.
  • Hazardous Workplace

Stages of consultation

The psychiatric appointment is carried out in stages.

The consultation includes:

  • Poll. It is carried out in order to clarify the patient's complaints and the symptoms that concern him. If it is impossible to interview the patient himself, the doctor talks with his relatives
  • nine0009 Testing
  • Additional diagnostics (if required)
  • Choice of therapy strategy and conditions (inpatient or outpatient treatment)

Examination and treatment are carried out, if necessary, on conditions of absolute anonymity and confidentiality.

Important! Only those patients who are socially dangerous are forcibly placed for treatment in a hospital. An examination is required beforehand. nine0003


All diagnoses by psychiatrists are based on the overall clinical picture and test results.

Additionally, the thyroid gland, pituitary gland and adrenal glands are examined.

Neurophysiological diagnostics includes:

  • EEG (electroencephalography)
  • MRI (magnetic resonance imaging of the brain)
  • Duplex scanning of head vessels
  • nine0023

    Also, the doctor may prescribe a study of the work of the autonomic nervous system.

    The complex of surveys is determined only by a psychotherapist on an individual basis.


    Therapy of any mental illness is carried out taking into account the patient's condition, the presence of concomitant diseases and individual characteristics.

    In the treatment use:

    • Drug therapy
    • Psychotherapeutic methods of various types (art therapy, music therapy, hypnosis, etc.)
    • Autotraining

    Treatment is carried out both individually and in groups.

    Important! If the disorder is a symptom of an underlying disease (pathology of the internal organs or brain), therapy is carried out in conjunction with a general practitioner, neurologist, cardiologist and other specialists. In any case, treatment is aimed at eliminating not only the symptoms, but also the cause that provoked their appearance. nine0003

    Psychologist, psychotherapist or psychiatrist - when and to whom to go?

    We usually know that a psychologist, a psychiatrist and a psychotherapist are different specialists. But to say how they differ from each other, and even more so to determine who to contact with this or that ailment, is already much more difficult. Sometimes it seems that all these specialists are doing the same thing, but it turns out that there are differences, and they are significant. nine0003

    How do psychologists, psychiatrists and psychotherapists differ from each other and who can help if you have mental problems, panic attacks, relationship difficulties, phobias, fears or depression?


    What do psychologists do? Psychology is a science that studies the behavior, thoughts, feelings and motivations of people. Among the problems that psychologists work with are the psychological development of children, the work of the mind, memorization, relationships in the family or team. nine0003

    Important: psychologists are not doctors. They do not treat anything, do not recommend methods of treatment and do not prescribe drugs. Psychologists help to find a way out of problem situations, calm down, understand and accept yourself.

    With what problems should I go to a psychologist? A psychologist will help if:

    • you have experienced a catastrophe, natural disaster or serious injury and cannot stop thinking about it;

    • you are suffering from the loss of a loved one or serious illness of your relatives; nine0003

    • worried about problems in the family: difficulties in relationships with a partner or conflicts with children;

    • you have a creative or career crisis, problems at work or at school;

    • you found yourself in a difficult life situation - divorced, became a single mother, lost your job, ended up in a hospital.

    How do psychologists work? During the reception, psychologists most often talk - ask questions and listen carefully to the answers. Less commonly, turn on music, show pictures or play - such methods help the psychologist to understand the client, and the client to be distracted and relaxed. nine0003


    What do psychiatrists do? Psychiatrists study, prevent and treat mental health problems. To do this, they must have a special qualification in the field of psychiatry.

    Unlike psychologists, all psychiatrists are doctors. They prescribe drugs (including potent ones), make decisions about hospitalization (including involuntary - if a person is a danger to himself or others), and also decide whether a person is capable or not. nine0003

    With what problems should I go to a psychiatrist? With serious ones - so much so that they often do not come to a psychiatrist, but end up. For example, if a patient suffers from:

    • various addictions - from drugs, alcohol, games or drugs that affect the mind and body;

    • for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, psychosis, hallucinations or severe depression with suicidal tendencies;

    • dementia (dementia due to old age, serious illness, injury or alcoholism), delirium tremens (delirious tremens and related conditions) or encephalopathy (brain damage) affecting the psyche;

    • and hears voices, sees people, animals, communicates with aliens, considers himself a "new messiah", "avatar" or Napoleon.

    How do psychiatrists work? Psychiatrists diagnose mental disorders, pay attention to chemical imbalances in the brain, prescribe tests and additional examinations (MRI, X-ray, CT, etc.). They assess both the mental and physical effects of the disorder and interact with other physicians. nine0003


    What do psychotherapists do? Psychotherapists help with stress, emotional swings, relationship problems, or bad habits. They also treat depression, mania and panic attacks.

    The field of activity of psychotherapists is between psychology and psychiatry. Unlike psychologists, psychotherapists are doctors and can treat mental disorders such as depression, mania, or panic attacks. But unlike psychiatrists, psychotherapists do not prescribe drugs, much less send them to the hospital. nine0003

    With what problems should I go to a psychotherapist? If you can't get rid of some uncomfortable feeling for a long time and you are sure that your condition is not normal, you may need to see a psychotherapist. What else will indicate this:

    • constant apathy, lack of desire to work, take care of the house or family - you want to lie down or sit all the time;

    • feeling that someone is controlling you, you are being persecuted, your loved ones are conspiring against you; nine0003

    • outbursts of aggression, sudden changes in emotions - from tears to hysterical laughter;

    • obsessive feeling that you have an incurable disease and no one can help;

    • the appearance of addictions - from drinking or certain drugs.

    How do psychotherapists work? If your psychotherapist is a psychiatrist with a specialization in psychotherapy, you will have an interview during your appointment, after which you may be prescribed medication. If a psychotherapist is a trained psychologist who has been trained in psychotherapy, he will not be able to prescribe prescription medications. nine0003
