Treatment Philosophy

Dr. Robert Kohn knows that the proper diagnosis leads to the proper treatment. He uses a Holistic concept of Healing and views the patient as a whole, rather than just treating the symptoms. Dr. Kohn's approach is to assess your symptoms using a Biological-Psychological-Social framework. This is explained in Our Approach to Healing.

What is a Neuro-Psychiatrist?

A Neuro-Psychiatrist refers to a physician who is trained in the field of Neurology and Psychiatry. This training and experience forms the foundation for understanding medical conditions that affect our brain and behavior. Impaired brain behavior relationships result in problems that affect our attention (ADHD/ADD), memory (Memory Loss), emotion (Mood Disorders), and executive functions (Brain Injury) such as planning, problem solving, time management and the use of language.

A Neuro-Psychiatrist uses this understanding to diagnose and treat diseases, injuries, and inherited conditions that impair our personal and interpersonal well-being. Treatment requires an agreement between you, the patient, and the treatment plan that can include medical testing, medicine, and the use of other resources.
