The staff at Adolescent, Child and Adult Psychiatry is dedicated to assisting each client with a customized treatment plan that is evidence based and proven to be effective at helping people see a reduction in their symptoms and improvement in their overall quality of life. Research has shown that with the use of medication as well as therapy people are more likely to improve and see longer term reduction in symptoms. Every staff member is dedicated to delivering compassionate, non-judgmental care. Although each provider has unique set of skills and a unique approach to treatment, there is one common attitude we all share and that is wanting to help the person improve in mind, body and spirit.
Dr. Maroof says: "I want to make a change in my patients' lives so that they can take care of themselves, their family and finally, their community. Medication is not the only answer. It can address only part of the problem and one cannot emphasize enough the role of proper diet, exercise, healthy eating habits, getting a good nights rest, learning healthy coping skills, setting healthy boundaries and prioritizing our life. It is also important to set realistic expectations for ourselves in life and from our society."
Dr. Maroof believes the field of psychiatry is ignored, neglected and stigmatized. We are now realizing the biological basis of psychiatric disorders and their strong genetic predisposition. Psychiatric problems, she says, are as common as colds and coughs and most of them can be easily treated. Our goal is to help our patients get better and perform to the best of their capacity without feeling sedated or drugged. We are fortunate to be in an era where there is choice of multiple medications with which we can address the issues. Often this results in our patients being able to continue life "as usual". Patients often mention "I have never felt so good before. I did not know what I was missing!"
