Psychiatric healthcare on STT
I know there is a hospital and I know there are psychologists and regular health care needs can be met on STT.
We have one family member that must see a psychiatrist (not psychologists) due to an auto-immune syndrome that attacks the brain. Sounds awful but it is manageable and you wouldn't even notice it if you met the person.
I still have yet to find out if there are any psychiatrist on island. I found a couple of names searching the web but want to know what you guys have to say. I was hoping to do video sessions with our current doc but she was unable to work it out long term.
Any names or numbers to help me with this would be awesome!
Check out Insight Psychological Services. I have been there with a family member and have seen Dr. Zen. Good guy, knowledgeable, feel pretty lucky to have him on St. Thomas. I've seen many many many psychiatrists with my family member and out of all of them, Dr. Zen is right there at the top with who I liked.
seeya: In case you have trouble finding him, Dr. Zen is kinda his nickname. Here is Dr. Meservy's info from the Insight website: https://www.insightvi.com/providers.html
Oh my!! That is quite the list! I would get on it. There are generally lots of cancelations and such. When I was visiting him it was pre storms and I didn't have a wait. I also saw Dr. Howells (Cutright) on a regular basis prior to seeing Dr. Zen so that may have helped get us bumped up the list a bit. With my family member, there was a time where we used their stateside doctor, local clinic, and local therapist working together for medication management. Not sure what your situation calls for but sometimes you can find a way to make it work 🙂
The solution to your problem is Dr Sang. She works for the government and has a private practice near Five Courners (Lorraine Princess) Christiansted. Her phone number is 340-713-0348. She is probably the best psychiatrist on this island having practiced for over 40 years in the states.
