Scottsdale Mental Health and Wellness Institute (SMHWI) is a center of excellence providing premier psychiatric services including psychosomatic medicine. Psychosomatic medicine is a complete approach to the emotional, cognitive, and behavioral needs of our patients. A psychosomatic disorder involves both mind and body. Some medical conditions are especially prone to cause worsened anxiety and depression. Stress may also affect physical conditions such as diabetes, cholesterol, pain and blood pressure.
The relation between mental and physical illness is well known. Our psychiatrists are recognized experts in the field of psychosomatic psychiatry and are at the forefront of diagnosis, therapeutics, and research of illnesses in this field. This allows our physicians and psychiatrists ways to discuss how to best manage patients with psychosomatic illness.
Scottsdale Mental Health and Wellness Institute psychiatrists, medical doctors and others in our team have extensive knowledge of physical, social, and neurological disorders and their relation to abnormal illness. This allows us to implement targeted therapies for psychosomatic patients.
The application of Psychosomatic Medicine can help our patients achieve mental and physical wellness.
