Medications can also be written, depending on your need and diagnosis.
Medical training in signs and symptoms of mental health and disease help Dr Kaul to tailor a regimen to meet your needs.

Difference Between treating Anxiety and Depression at DPC Vs. Insurance Based Doctors in Bergen County
There is a shortage of psychiatrists in this country and as such, primary care providers often end up treating anxiety and depression due to lack of access. In addition, the stigma associated with mental health problems leads about 80% of patients to avoid the psychiatrist and seek treatment from their primary care doctors. In family medicine, while there is extensive training in mental health, the time for each visit is incredibly short and, as such, takes weeks or months to really develop a doctor-patient relationship. The easy accessibility to Dr. Kaul that DPC provides allows for a longer, more meaningful visit and conversation as well as a more in-depth analysis of your signs and symptoms. Anxiety and depression are so prevalent in our community today, and the fragmented care that is available between therapists, primary care providers and psychiatrists adds to the difficulty. Getting care with Dr. Kaul ensures that she will coordinate with all of your health professionals and advocate for you in any setting that you need
