Many people suffer from stress, mood and anxiety disorders, depression and other psychological problems which can adversely affect their quality of life. In addition, diseases and conditions such as diabetes, headaches and obesity often have a “behavioral” component which needs to be addressed if the patient is to be effectively treated.
The Division of Behavioral Medicine at Reliant Medical Group is dedicated to offering expert care and treatment for a wide range of diseases and conditions including:
- Overeating/ obesity
- Coping with medical conditions
- Coping with Chronic Pain
- Diabetes management
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Compliance with medical tx.
- Lifestyle modification (e.g. Lifestyle changes to promote better health)
- Family Counseling (Adults only unless related to a minor with a medical condition)
- Other behavioral health and medical problems
A unique aspect of our treatment philosophy is treating both the medical and psychological component of many conditions at the same time. This simultaneous treatment has been shown to provide more effective outcomes as well as greater convenience for our patients.
Although most patients are treated individually, some patients choose to take advantage of group settings where they can interact, learn and receive motivation from other patients who are being treated for the same problem. This has been shown to result in a more effective learning environment for many patients.
In addition, the Division of Behavioral Medicine at Reliant Medical Group is dedicated to working closely with other Reliant Medical Group departments to ensure each patient receives a full range of care. This multidisciplinary approach has allowed patients to benefit from leading Reliant Medical Group physicians with a high degree of knowledge and expertise.
From the latest treatments and therapies to pioneering group medical visits, the Department of Behavioral Medicine at Reliant Medical Group is dedicated to providing you with the best in behavioral care.
