Your First Appointment:

Depression and Anxiety Specialist in Boca Raton
 Mark R. Barnett, M.D. 

I am a board certified psychiatrist. I graduated from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1992. I did my residency in General Psychiatry and my fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of California Irvine. I have been in private practice in South Florida since 1997.

I prescribe medication and I do psychotherapy, depending on the needs of each patient. Some people come seeking medication to help with their depression, anxiety or mood changes and some people also want to do talk therapy. Some of my patients are referred to me for medication by their therapists.

When you come for your first appointment I will ask you how I can help, what is troubling you, for how long you have had the symptoms and if you have had any previous treatment for the symptoms. It is helpful to know if any of your family members have ever had similar symptoms or treatment. In order to understand your situation I will ask about your family and job or school.

The first appointment lasts an hour or sometimes more since I like to take the time necessary to get all your information and make good recommendations.

My practice is on the second floor of a medical office building at 7301 West Palmetto Park Road in Boca Raton, just west of Powerline Road.
