Welcome to Lorien Psychiatry. We’re three things:
- first and foremost, a working psychiatry practice trying to help patients get better.
- an online database of mental-health-related resources. This is still under construction.
- a political/economic experiment. Everyone knows the US health care system isn’t working. We want to try something else. More on this later.
We’re trying to grow slowly, and currently only accepting patients who are referred by an existing patient or by their therapist (or who have worked with Dr. Siskind before). If that’s you, please check the terms at the “Become A Patient” link on the left menu. Dr. Siskind is not accepting new patients without a referral at this time. If you want to be notified when that changes, you can sign up for the mailing list.
The database is provided to everyone, current patient or not, free of charge. It represents Dr. Siskind’s opinions only (though backed up with citations). Please don’t change your psychiatric care based on anything you see in the database without talking it over with your doctor first. I’m constantly adding to the database, and you can sign up for the mailing list if you want updates on new material.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions about anything you see in the database, or especially if you think you’ve spotted an error. If you’re not a patient of mine, I won’t be able to help you with diagnosis/treatment or otherwise provide medical advice. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
