Adult, Geriatric and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychopharmacology
Comprehensive Initial Evaluation
The first visit consists of a 120-minute diagnostic assessment. Following the psychiatric interview, Dr. Wexler discusses diagnostic impressions and synthesizes an initial treatment plan. Dr. Wexler then writes an in-depth report, which he provides to the patient as well as to other members of the patient’s treatment team, as permitted by the patient. Initial components of the treatment plan may be implemented at the end of this visit.
Typical follow-up visits last 30 to 60 minutes. Dr. Wexler assesses response to medications and select nutraceuticals, modifies treatment as indicated, and addresses other concerns. Critically important, these visits include discussion of life context.
Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)
To address refractory conditions including treatment-resistant depression, addictions, and trauma, Dr. Wexler offers KAP, an in-office administration of ketamine concurrent with a uniquely qualified psychologist, who conducts a 2-hour, in-depth, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy session. KAP sessions are preceded by a 1-hour psychological intake and a 30-minute medical screen by Dr. Wexler.
Dr. Wexler has deep experience working with older adults and coordinating care closely with geriatricians and other medical specialists. This is important given the unique challenges facing individuals in this age group.
Second Opinion Consultations
Dr. Wexler is available for one-time, in-depth consultations to aid in management of patients who want input regarding diagnoses and/or treatment options but who intend to continue working with their current treatment team. Typical visit time is 120 minutes, and a written report is provided to the patient and/or the patient’s treating clinicians.
