Today’s psychiatrist is very different than yesterdays as a result of the rapid development in the field of neurological medical science. Former prejudices and misperceptions surrounding psychiatric illness have been dispelled as we now recognize psychiatric conditions to be medical disorders. Just like a cardiologist sees heart disease or an endocrinologist sees diabetes, a psychiatrist see disorders of the mind as psychiatric disease. Fortunately people’s attitudes have modernized ensuring humane care and effective treatment of “brain disorders”.
Psychiatrists are Medical Doctors
Psychiatrists like Dr. Kittay, are medical doctors that graduate from 4 years of college premed, 4 years of medical school, and then 4-6 years of a medical residency program.
