Your First Appointment
Dr. Ascher will provide a careful diagnostic evaluation tailored to your individual concerns and make detailed treatment recommendations so that medications and psychotherapy are prescribed only if necessary. 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.
