Massachusetts Psychiatric Services & Rates
- The integrative psychiatric assessment is an opportunity to have a comprehensive evaluation of the psychiatric, medical, and holistic aspects of your health. Assessments include a complete psychiatric interview, review of your outside medical records and labs, review of medications and supplements, and analysis of labs. Patient education regarding the various treatment options will be discussed so patients can make well-informed decisions regarding their treatment. A personalized treatment plan for optimal health will be developed in collaboration with the patient.
- After the initial consultation, if we both feel we can work well together, then we will schedule follow up sessions based on your needs and individualized recommendations for care. My goal is to set you on the path to feeling well and staying well. If treatment with medication is initiated, we will closely monitor medication efficacy and side-effects. Once your symptoms have been adequately managed and treated with medication management, care will continue to be provided through medication checks to ensure ongoing mental wellness.
We do not accept insurance at this time. If your insurance company will reimburse for telemedicine visits, we can supply you with a superbill you can present to your insurance company. On rare occasions, additional administrative work may be required outside of your appointment time including document preparation for a third party (attorney, employer, etc.); medical record handling; completion of any paperwork/forms; and obtaining any prior authorizations for medications or treatment. We charge an additional fee for these administrative tasks. Time is billed in quarter-hour increments at $250/hr.
Mr. Garrett sees patients with varying diagnoses including, but not limited to:

Consult Our Massachusetts Psychiatric practitioners If You're Suffering From OCD
OCD is a type of anxiety disorder that can cause a person to have intrusive, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and to perform repetitive behaviors (compulsions) to try to relieve the anxiety. There are different types of OCD, but common obsessions include fear of contamination, need for symmetry or exactness, and unwanted sexual or aggressive thoughts. Common compulsions include excessive hand washing, cleaning, and checking.
OCD is a treatable condition, but it can be difficult to overcome without help. Treatment typically involves a combination of medication and therapy. Medication can help to reduce the symptoms of OCD, but it is not a cure. The most common type of medication used to treat OCD is a type of antidepressant called a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). Therapy is an important part of treatment for OCD. It can help you to understand your thoughts and behaviors, and to learn new ways of coping with them. Exposure and response prevention (ERP) is a type of therapy that is often used to treat OCD.

ERP involves gradually exposing yourself to the things that trigger your OCD symptoms, without engaging in the compulsions. This can help you to learn that your fear is not real and that you can cope with the anxiety without needing to do the compulsions.
In severe cases of OCD, patients may need to be hospitalized in order to receive treatment. However, most people with OCD can be treated on an outpatient basis. If you or someone you know is struggling with OCD, there is help available. OCD is a treatable disorder, and with proper treatment, most people with OCD can live normal, healthy lives.
