Psychiatry is the medical specialty devoted to diagnosing, preventing, and treating mental disorders. These include various maladaptations related to mood, behavior, cognition, and perceptions. Psychiatrists are medical doctors, unlike psychologists, and must evaluate patients to determine whether their symptoms are the result of a physical illness, a combination of physical and mental ailments, or strictly psychiatric. They are qualified to assess both the mental and physical aspects of psychological problems. “As a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist, I am uniquely qualified in using a biopsychosocial formulation to observe and evaluate the factors that may be affecting someone while also being aware of any medical problems that could be present and not yet diagnosed” as stated by Dr. Posner.
