Medical Psychiatry (also known as Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry) focuses on the interconnections between medical and psychiatric conditions. Sometimes psychiatric issues (mood, anxiety, acute stress) can impede the treatment and recovery of a medical illness (heart disease, cancer, diabetes.) Conversely, medical illness can lead to the onset of psychiatric illness and behavioral problems.
At Pegasus Psychiatry, we address the unique challenges associated with co-occurring medical and psychiatric illnesses. Dr. Tom Zaubler has published extensively on this topic and has completed fellowship training addressing the impact medical illness can have on our emotional and psychiatric well-being. He also has subspecialty certification from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in this discipline of psychiatry in addition to general certification in psychiatry.
