Collaborative Clinical Professionals
Dr. Askins is a collaborative psychiatrist who enjoys communicating with mental health practitioners to provide a thorough and comprehensive treatment plan for each patient. Upon the appropriate consent from the patient, Dr. Askins will initiate the communication necessary for eliciting accurate, reliable and appropriate information about the patient’s clinical status and response to treatment. He will encourage compliance with recommended treatments, including those elements of treatment provided by other non-psychiatric physicians or non-physician mental health providers. He will also provide an immediate response to any acute developments that cannot be deferred to a future appointment.
Dr. Askins diagnoses and treats patients with common diagnoses or severe mental illness.
