Dr. Ascher is a knowledgeable, caring, and compassionate physician who can help you reach your personal goals.
If you are already in individual talk therapy, Dr. Ascher can provide psychiatric medication consultation to determine the most helpful medication for you. He will collaborate with your current therapist and other providers, as appropriate.
Your First Appointment
In most cases, your initial intake appointment with Dr. Ascher will be at least 1 ½ hours. Dr. Ascher will provide a careful diagnostic evaluation tailored to your individual needs and goals and make detailed treatment recommendations so that medications and psychotherapy are prescribed only if necessary. Dr. Ascher will collaborate with any mental health providers that you are working with and make recommendations to optimize your care. Dr. Ascher may order blood work to rule out any possible medical issues that could be the cause of your symptoms or contributing to your symptoms. Since genes influence the way a person’s body responds to specific medications, genetic testing for medications may be helpful in some circumstances. In addition to treating depression, anxiety, and adult ADHD, Dr. Ascher has special expertise in conditions complicated by substance problems and embraces a harm reduction approach.
With your signed consent, Dr. Ascher will consult with any family members or loved ones you feel would be helpful to gain a more complete understanding of your struggles.
In select cases, referral for supplementary consultations with specialists in neuropsychology, neurology, and other medical specialties will be coordinated by Dr. Ascher. For college and graduate students, Dr. Ascher and colleagues can help facilitate the qualification process for academic accommodations if appropriate, and provide guidance to families.
