A psychiatrist is a specialized physician who focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of mental and mood disorders. The first appointment with a psychiatrist lasts about an hour. During this time, the doctor will create an atmosphere of trust and ask the patient about the problem and its background. If necessary, the psychiatrist performs additional tests to clarify the situation or prescribes necessary analyses or tests. The psychiatrist will try to find a suitable solution to the mental health problem together with the patient.
