Psychiatry is the medical specialty practiced by doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of mental and emotional disorders such as depression, anxiety, manic-depressive disorder, phobias, and schizophrenia. Some of the medical specialists in psychiatry may also specialize in specific areas such as addiction, or in certain age groups such as adolescents or the geriatric population. Before consulting with a psychiatrist, it is good to know if the professional you are consulting has a focus to his practice, and if he has been certified by the Associação Brasileira de Psiquiatria, which is the official organization recognized by the Associação Médica Brasiliera.

ProcuraMed does not schedule appointments and does not interfere or intervene in the doctor-patient relationship. It is the responsibility of the patient to contact the doctor, clinic, or hospital of his choice.
