Cedar Rapids Psychiatry
Nystrom & Associates Cedar Rapids Psychiatry providers specialize in the treatment of mental health conditions through mental health services. Since psychotherapy is now primarily provided by psychologists and social workers, our psychiatric providers have increasingly focused on the medical aspects of treating mental health conditions. This includes assessment, prescribing psychiatric medications, ordering and interpreting necessary lab work, and coordinating care with other physicians who may be treating a patient for other health conditions as well as coordinating care with other medical providers.
We also offer telepsychiatry, which allows patients to meet with psychiatric medication providers, through our secure video app. Learn more about telepsychiatry here.
