DISCUSSION and COLLABORATIVE CARE

The Rizzi Group's Mental Health Team is trained in the use of the collaborative care model and practice it daily. It is this collaborative model in which every patient is discussed as to their diagnosis, treatment, and follow up that makes this practice unique and helps create The Rizzi Difference. It enables each patient to be seen as often as they require to assure that the desired effects of psychotropic medications have been achieved and that unwanted side effects are minimized.
