Psychiatric consultation and diagnosis for adults
The pressure exerted on us related to the pace of life, professional stress, issues in personal life cause more people to suffer from various types of mental disorders and diseases. The world’s largest mental health study conducted in 2009 indicates that 18.1–36.1% of global population will experience a mental disorder in their lifetime1. The OECD report from 2014 shows an upward trend in morbidity – data suggests that every second person will suffer from mental health disorders during their lifetime2. The most common are: addictions, anxiety disorders, insomnia, depression, somatization disorders. Nowadays, the problem of addictions seems to be particularly important, since in addition to the abuse of psychoactive substances, including medicines, behavioral addictions (computer games, social media or gambling) are becoming more prevalent. Consultation with a psychiatrist allows to dispel fears related to any uncertainties about one’s mental health. It gives the patient a clear answer as to what they are dealing with, which enables the determination of further treatment such as pharmacotherapy and/or psychotherapy.
We offer treatment and diagnosis of the following:
- Affective (depressive) disorders
- Anxiety disorders
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Psychotic disorders
- Mental illnesses of the elderly
- Personality disorders

Psychiatrist will conduct a thorough conversation. Its purpose is to establish a diagnosis and to formulate pharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatment plan afterwards – one that meets the needs and expectations of the patient. During the visit the doctor will resolve doubts and questions, conduct psychoeducation regarding the diagnosis and planned therapies. Patients who come for a visit for the first time will be asked to provide documents on previous outpatient or hospital treatment: information cards, blood test results, imaging tests (e.g. CT or MRI of the head), EEG or results of specialist consultations. It is also important to inform the doctor about current and past medications, chronic diseases, as well as the fact of being under the care of other specialists. Obtaining comprehensive knowledge about the patient’s health allows the psychiatrist to suggest the safest and most effective method of treatment.
