I want to share some exciting news
about the Medical Director at Abbott House.
We have been
so blessed to have Steve Best, MD join our Abbott House team. Dr. Best is a Neuropsychiatrist and is an expert at treating what he
calls “treatment-resistant”neuropsychiatric illnesses. With those words, Dr. Best is
referring to mental illness and health conditions that have not been
successfully treated by other physicians or professionals.
He has spent
his career researching, practicing and treating challenging patients with
focus on a patient’s complaint, as opposed to the “bigger picture” of the
contributing factors.The philosophy at
the NeuroscienceCenter views complex illness as
multi-faceted and so they take a multi-pronged approach to evaluation in order
to provide a successful personalized treatment plan.
