Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a psychiatrist vs psychologist?

The primary distinction between a psychiatrist and psychologist is that psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in mental health, while a psychologist for mental health does not possess a medical degree and typically focus on providing talk therapy. Psychiatrists can treat patients with medications, as only they are licensed to prescribe medications.

As a board-certified psychiatrist, Dr. Shaikh is able to diagnose and treat both physical and mental health issues, providing a comprehensive care plan. He is prepared to work with other medical professionals in order to ensure the best possible outcomes for his patients.
