Psychiatric Medication

PFBH is committed to finding psychopharmacological solutions to psychiatric problems. Our patients are partners in their care in determining the best treatment plan for their individual needs. We work tirelessly to help patients make informed decisions regarding their mental health.

PFBH works with GeneSight and Lineagen to administer genetic tests at the practice. These pharmacogenetic tests can indicate which medications will and won’t work for a patient based on their genetic profile. They help eliminate some of the trial and error inherent to psychiatric medicine. Click the logos below to learn more.
