About The Visits with Dr. Brown

First Consultation

If you’re considering an appointment with Dr. Brown, please call our office at 201-247-2339. Dr. Brown will reach out at a convenient time to discuss your treatment needs, which may include setting up an in-office appointment.

First Visit

During the initial appointment, Dr. Brown will listen attentively to you and ask questions to clarify and understand your feelings, concerns, and experiences. Dr. Brown may inquire about possible sources of stress, previous mental health treatments, medical conditions, family history, and other relevant information. You will have ample opportunity to pose any questions that arise.

At the end of the session, Dr. Brown will share his impressions of your condition and review all treatment options. These may include psychotherapy (talk therapy), psychopharmacology ( medication treatment), or a combination of the two. Together, we will create a treatment plan that aligns with your preferences and offers maximal benefit. For more information, please see our services.

Subsequent Visits

If you and Dr. Brown decide on psychotherapy, it is often best accomplished with visits scheduled every one or two weeks. If the decision is to use only psychopharmacology, these visits are generally about once per month or less, as soon as you begin feeling better and the optimal dosage of medication has been established.

The length of treatment can vary considerably depending on the nature of your condition; generally, emotional conditions that are more recent and short-lived can be treated in less than one year, while more chronic conditions require longer periods of treatment. The frequency and length of treatment will be decisions that you and Dr. Brown make together, and you may revise the type, duration, and frequency of treatment if necessary.
