Psychiatry is the branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of mental and psychological disorders. Generally, those disorders can be classified into psychoses and neuroses. Psychoses are the more serious yet less common diseases like schizophrenia and bipolar disorders. Neuroses are the more common less severe disorders like depression and anxiety disorders. Among the common and frequently encountered anxiety disorders are obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder and social anxiety disorder. The management of psychiatric disorders requires both medical and psychological treatments. This includes pharmacological treatment (medication) as well as psychotherapy. Psychiatrists are trained to diagnose and treat psychiatric disorders and they work in close collaboration with psychologists who can run psychotherapy sessions when needed.
I have been a patient of GMC for 30 years. So has my family. For me they are the only health professionals that I would go to. The quality of professional service is very highest and on more than one occasion, the diagnosis and advice I receive has been life altering. I wouldn’t use anyone else.
I have been attending the GMC clinic as a patient since 1986 and especially Dr Ralph Joyce and in that time, totally relied on them for all my medical requirements . I trust totally their professionalism, approach and advice and they are always the first contact for any medical needs.
