The 1st Visit at Nature Coast Psychiatry
The 1st visit lasts 45 minutes to 90 minutes depending on the complexity of your situation including medical problems. The results of your testing (done using your Consultation Form) are discussed, and Dr Clark will comprehensively assess your mental and emotional issues, as well as medical issues and medicines that can impact your concerns. At the end of the first visit, if we decide to work together, a collaborative action plan will be developed which may include medication, therapy, vitamins, herbs &/or supplements, mind &/or body exercises, worksheets & homework.
Psychiatric Medication Management
Medicine can be an integral component of psychiatric care, and is essential for more severe psychiatric conditions. Sometimes, vitamins and supplements may be recommended to support mental and emotional health. These visits are brief, focusing on medication, effectiveness and side effects. Still an overview of life issues is needed to assess if medicines are not working as well, or if one is feeling worse because of unfortunate life circumstances.
Stress Reduction through Mindfulness
Mindfulness is a form of meditation, a skill, and even a way of life. Mindfulness Meditation increases awareness of sensations and feelings, but at a distance. Mindfulness eases suffering in everyday life.
Creative Expressions Therapy
Creative Expressions can help you excavate deeply hidden emotions and beliefs, through writing, art, literature, film, music, poetry and even movement. At times, logic cannot enter into the subconscious easily enough to effect change. Creativity bypasses logic, allowing healing to occur effortlessly.
We offer virtual visits through https://doxy.me/naturecoast using any internet browser! This is a secure technology for telemedicine visits (telepsychiatry). Usually, virtual visits are only available for patients in Florida who have been evaluated face-to-face. Virtual visits are charged at the same rate as face-to-face visits. FOR NOW: COVID-19 has led to some exceptions in coverage -most insurances now cover telemedicine.
We accept Medicare Part B* assignment and are in-network for Aetna*, Cigna/EverNorth* & United HealthCare*. We are out-of-network for other PPOs (but have a billing service to assist) and are not covered by other HMOs or Medicaid. *We cannot accept patients with Medicaid/Medicaid Plans as Primary or Secondary Coverage.

This form can be long, so that in-person we can discuss what is really important to you, rather than Dr Clark reading off a list of symptoms.
After receiving the above form, you will be sent a Medication List form & the usual consents prior to appointment. If you wish to use insurance, please also sign up for Advekit (below).
