Anxiety and Depression Treatment. Dr. Cohen has 30 years experience in treating anxiety and depressive disorders. In 1987, he established the Anxiety and Depression Treatment Clinic in Del Mar. Today, anxiety and depressive disorders are very treatable conditions. Using a variety of methods including psychotherapy
(talk therapy), medications, and/or effective natural therapies, Dr. Cohen brings a record of high success.
A Safer Approach with Medications.
A recognized expert on how to use prescription drugs safely and effectively, Dr. Cohen has lectured at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Scripps Clinic (La Jolla), UCSD, and other respected institutions. Because of the high frequency of side effects with antidepressant and anti-anxiety medications, he prescribes these drugs with special care. Unlike most doctors, he uses a flexible, individualized approach that frequently begins with very low doses, and selects therapies based on each person's characteristics such as age, gender, size, state of health, other medications, previous medication reactions, and family history. When handled with an emphasis on safety, antidepressant and anti-anxiety medications (and natural therapies) can provide great benefit, even for highly sensitive persons. Dr. Cohen has published books and articles on safer methods with statin drugs for high cholesterol (Lipitor, Crestor, others), medications for high blood pressure and migraine headaches, and on natural alternatives that work. His work also includes helping people who have had serious reactions to the antibiotics Cipro and Levaquin.
Treating Each Patient as an Individual.
In today's fast-paced medical world, Dr. Cohen is one of the few doctors who will not rush you in and out of his office. Dr. Cohen wants to know about you as a unique individual, and about your concerns, your situations, your experiences and your strengths. Dr. Cohen believes that good communication is essential for successful treatment.
Dr. Cohen is available for consultation and
treatment at his office and for telephone consultations with English-speaking people in the U.S. and around the world.
