My experience with Ernie Valencia and the whole team for my travel PCR test and certificates was very smooth, professional, and easy, especially as I had a quick turnaround required with only one day in Bangkok before my international flights. I would recommend Sikarin for your travel testing and document needs.

Amazing doctors, amazing staff. The doctor and nurses were very caring. Answered all of my questions clearly and provided excellent service. They were all quick and efficient. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and the food was great. If you want to undergo medical treatment in Phuket, you should definitely choose Bangkok Hospital Phuket.

That was the best experience I've had in a hospital. Being in a hospital sucks😔 but the whole staff made my stay a special one. 😆 They were truly amazing. My doctor was remarkable and the nurses really went above and beyond to comfort me in every way possible. They checked on me every 10 minutes or so prior and after the surgery to reassure me that everything was going to be ok.

My experience with Bangkok Hospital Samui has been amazing. I spent several days here, and the nurses were so kind, thoughtful, and skilled at what they do. My procedure went so smoothly and I'm happy with the results. The surgeon was very good at easing my concerns. He distracted me from my worries and very professional at his job. I am very thankful for all the staff there.

    Psychiatry is the branch of medicine that deals with the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. A medical doctor who specializes in this branch of medicine is called a psychiatrist and they can assess both the physical and mental aspects of all psychological issues. Psychiatrists are trained and qualified to:

    • Make a diagnosis and develop a management plan
    • Provide urgent care for a sudden mental illness
    • Provide advice about lifestyle changes
    • Provide advice and second opinions to other doctors and medical professionals
    • Help manage a long-term mental health problem
    • Work with patients individually, or with the patient and patient’s family, partner, or carers
    • Refer patients to other medical professionals
    • Admit patients to hospital if required
    • Prescribe medications, such as antidepressants, stimulants, and mood stabilizers
    • Perform procedures.

    There are numerous procedures psychiatrists can use to diagnose and treat patients, these include, but are not limited to:

    • Psychometric testing, including personality tests, intelligence tests, and neuropsychological tests
    • Physical and laboratory testing, including full physical exams, neurological evaluations, laboratory tests (such as blood and urine tests), and neuroimaging techniques
    • Psychotherapy
    • Psychosocial interventions
    • Electroconvulsive therapy.

    Some common reasons why someone might see a psychiatrist include:

    • Problem adjusting after major life changes
    • Depression that does not go away
    • Anxiety, fear, or worry
    • Suicidal thinking
    • Hurting themselves on purpose
    • Thoughts of hurting other people
    • Obsessional thinking
    • Constant negative thoughts
    • Feeling like people want to harm them or are after them
    • Feeling jumpy or on edge
    • Delusions
    • Hallucinations
    • Addictive behaviors
    • Memory problems
    • Violence or emotional outburst
    • Conditions that start in childhood, such as intellectual disability, autism, and childhood anxiety.

    Examples of the mental health conditions that psychiatrists can diagnose and treat include anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), major depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and schizophrenia.

    How Long Should I Stay in Thailand?

    Psychiatric treatments are typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you should be able to leave the clinic or hospital immediately after the procedure, and leave Thailand the day after. If hospitalization is required, the average hospital stay is around 1 to 2 weeks. Since psychiatric treatment usually requires more than one appointment, you can choose to stay in Thailand for the whole treatment plan or to make multiple trips.

    What's the Expected Recovery Time?

    Recovery from a mental health problem depends on your specific condition and the type of treatment you underwent. However, there is usually no recovery time needed after the psychiatric treatment itself. You can go back to your normal routine immediately. It is normal to feel overwhelmed or emotionally drained after a treatment session, so you can take a day off of work after your treatment if you need to.

    What Aftercare is Required?

    If your psychiatrist prescribes medications, make sure to take it as directed. Your psychiatrist may also advise you on making lifestyle changes. You may need to attend regular checkups with your psychiatrist, ranging from once a week to twice a year, depending on your specific condition and its severity. 

    What's the Success Rate?

    Psychiatry continues to develop and advance. A better understanding of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders, as well as new technology, have helped psychiatrists to become better at diagnosing, preventing, treating, and managing mental health conditions. The quality of life of people with a mental health condition who go to psychiatrists and stick to their treatment plans have been proven to improve. While there is typically no serious risks to psychiatry treatment, it does have some side effects, such as feeling overwhelmed or emotional after treatment. 

    Are there Alternatives?

    In some cases, you should be able to see other mental health professionals, such as clinical psychologists and mental health counselors. 

    Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 07/10/2020.
