Psychiatrists are medical doctors who support patients with medication management and oversee treatment plans. To become a psychiatrist, a person must graduate from medical school, successfully complete an exam for a state licensure to practice medicine, and study an additional four years in a psychiatry residency program.
During your appointment, your Bloom psychiatrist will evaluate medical and psychological data to make a diagnosis, and to work to develop a customized treatment plan. Should a patient require medication, we work collaboratively to find the most effective option. We take several things into consideration when making this decision, such as medical history, allergies/intolerances, and lifestyle. Medication can be an important piece of comprehensive care. At Bloom, we monitor our patients’ medications by regularly scheduled check-ins, and encourage open and honest communication from our patients.

When to Seek Help
The decision to seek psychiatric help may occur at any point in one’s life. Problems ranging from anxiety and depression to panic disorders and personality disorders are some reasons to seek psychiatric treatment. At Bloom, we understand that taking the first step is often the most difficult. We are here to help make the first step easy for you. Contact us today and we can match you with a provider who can help.
Do you offer in-person appointments?
Do you have providers who speak other languages?
Can you refill my medication before my next visit?
A prescriber at Bloom Health Centers will typically provide prescriptions to last until the next scheduled appointment. We urge you to schedule your follow-up appointment before you conclude your visit so that you do not run out of your medications. In situations where you must cancel your scheduled appointment for a valid reason, the prescriber may provide a bridge refill as a one-time courtesy. It may seem inconvenient, but best practice is to manage medications in person. We want to ensure that you are doing well, and you are getting the correct medications at the correct dose for your health condition. For routine and non-emergent schedule changes, please call the Patient Care Center at the main number (1-667-668-2566). For urgent requests, you are encouraged to contact your provider directly; however, for emergencies, please go to the nearest emergency room.
