Unique, Progressive & Comprehensive
GWPC is unique and progressive in its approach to mental health. Treatment is personalized and research based, and draws on many treatment modalities. Dr. Hammill, Dr. Hefuna, and Dr. Sussal are all Board Certified Psychiatrists, and are trained and current with the best evidence-based medication treatment strategies. GWPC’s psychiatrists place a strong emphasis on psychotherapy as the foundation of treatment. In fact, research shows that the gold standard of treatment for depression, anxiety, and ADHD in both adults and children is combined psychotherapy with medication used judiciously.
GWPC is comprehensive because it is a practice consisting of psychiatrists, psychotherapists, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, and professional counselors. GWPC has every patient’s unique needs in mind thanks to its extensive highly-qualified staff.
Every individual is unique, and differences among patients should be considered when psychiatric therapies are being determined. Although it seems so simple, personalized medicine is rarely applied to many psychiatric disorders. At its core, personalized treatment is the systematic use of information obtained from the patient to dictate the type and course of treatment.
