Dr. Barbara Bartlik is a psychiatrist and integrative medicine specialist in Manhattan who has over three decades of experience in clinical practice. She uses mainstream medications, psychotherapy, cutting edge technologies, and natural therapies, such as dietary modification, detoxification, and supplementation with vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and herbs. Whether the problem is psychiatric (anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, PTSD, schizophrenia, autism, or bipolar disorder) or medical (fatigue, pain, insomnia, dementia, sexual dysfunction, hormonal-related problems, traumatic brain injury, weight, or autoimmune issues), this integrative approach is effective and tends to minimize adverse effects. Dr. Bartlik does recognize that sometimes natural approaches are not enough and it is necessary to prescribe medication, temporarily or on an ongoing basis. Even then, Dr. Bartlik believes that natural therapies and lifestyle interventions can enhance the effect of medications and overall health, allowing for a reduction in dosage or eventual discontinuation of the medication.
