Dr. Robert Kohn's Neuro-Psychiatric Practice
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.
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.
