General Psychiatry

As part of an academic medical center, the USF Health Psychiatry Center provides care for the most common and the most challenging conditions affecting patients and their families.

Our patients meet with our highly trained psychiatrists and psychologists to discuss their mental health concerns and how they are impacting their lives with symptoms that range in severity.  To further define a mental health concern, testing may be recommended, so that a comprehensive care plan can be developed.

A mental health concern that is prevalent in our society today is depression. Our team of psychiatrists and psychologists at USF Health give patients ways to cope with depression, from medication and therapy in milder cases to TMS for medication resistant major depression. As the only academic medical center on the West Coast of Florida, our patient care is directly impacted by our on-going clinical trials.  

At USF Health, we want to make it easy for patients to get the care they need.
