OUR SERVICES

PHARMACOLOGICAL SERVICES

South Shore Psychiatry provides psychiatric evaluation, diagnosis and psychopharmacology services for children, adolescents and adults. Medications do not cure psychiatric disorders. However, they can play an important role in managing symptoms of many psychiatric disorders. The first step to determine if an individual may benefit from a pharmacologic intervention is to establish an accurate diagnosis through a thorough psychiatric evaluation. To schedule an appointment for an evaluation, please call Mary Ann at 781.837.8833.
