Welcome to Forrest Psychiatry  

New Patients

My services:
I am accepting new patients in my adult psychiatry practice (18 years of age and older).  I provide evaluation and medication management of psychiatric illnesses. I will gladly work in collaboration with your therapist if you choose.

Please note that I do not:

  • Accept medicare or medicaid (including UPMC for You, UPMC for Life)
  • Prescribe stimulants (including Adderall, Ritalin, etc).
  • Provide assessments for disability or disability insurance.
  • Prescribe high doses of benzodiazepines (including xanax, valium, klonopin, etc).
  • Prescribe xanax (alprazolam) except under extremely rare circumstances and in very small quantities

The first step in setting up an initial appointment is to fill out the following secure form.  This is so I can better understand your needs. Once the form is filled out and sent, I will contact you via email within 1 to 3 business days to schedule an appointment.
