Online Psychiatric Practice Focused on You and ADHD

Focused Mind Psychiatry was launched by a board certified psychiatric NP Svetlana Zak, to provide affordable, accessible ADHD treatment. The mission at FMP is personalized patient centered care and satisfaction. FMP is not based on a business model of healthcare and is not profit driven. Why is this important to you as a patient? We do not accept patients unless we have the time to devote to helping them achieve their goals. We keep our fees low and provide only the highest quality care.

It only takes a few minutes to perform a brief online assessment and book your session. After booking, you will be sent a form requesting important information such as reason for appointment, medications you are taking and your past experience with mental health care.

Your provider is an expert in diagnosing psychiatric conditions and will work with you to make sure your diagnosis is correct and the treatment meets your goals.  We believe in a shared decision making model of healthcare.  We collaborate with you to get to a treatment plan that you are happy with.

If you are in New York, Kings, Queens, Richmond, Bronx , Westchester and Rockland counties, we use Capsule pharmacy to deliver to your house.  This is the best option for getting medication in these areas of NY.  Some areas do not have Capsule, so you may need to go to a retail pharmacy or use another delivery service.

You will have access to the portal and be able to schedule your follow up med check as you see fit.  We recommend  2-4 weeks.  If there are immediate concerns with your medication,  you can also email  support@focusedmindpsychiatry.com or send a message via portal.

Did an important meeting come up and you cannot make your appointment? Or you found a great deal on a vacation? No problem!  We got you.  Just send a message through the portal or email support@focusedmindpsychiatry.com and be sure to cancel 48 hours prior your appointment.  Let us know if you need to request a refill and re-book for following month.

Affordability

Exceptional care at fare prices.  We are able to keep our rates low by doing focused 45 minute assessments.  This means you may have to help us out and provide history for us to review prior to your appointment.

Accessibility

Psychiatric care from your home means easy to keep appts, easy to get medication, one less thing on your to do list, saves money and time, no transportation needed. 

Medication

All medication is prescribed as long as it's safe and helps to treat your condition.

Communication

Secure messaging with unlimited access is provided after your initial appointment.  Email support@focusedmindpsychiatry.com with questions.

Counseling

We can refer you to a counselor who specializes in ADHD.  Please let us know at your appointment or send an email to support@focusedmindpsychiatry.com

Letters and Forms

Yes, we provide diagnosis reports or special accommodation letters and forms for school.  We charge a form fee  $100 to cover the time it requires to fill out the documents. You can pay for the form by clicking book now tab and choosing form option.

How does this work?

1) Complete a short online questionnaire to get matched with the right provider in your state.  Currently we are seeing patients in AZ and NY.

2) Get access to the schedule and book your 45 minute focused assessment. 

3) Show up for your appt via secure telemedicine link that will be sent to your cell phone and email. 

4) Go to the pharmacy with your ID and pick up your medication if prescribed.

5) Sign up for monthly follow up appointments to fine-tune your treatment.

6) Monthly appointments are recommended for 2-3 months, then you can submit requests for refills. 

Why do you have refill fees?

Refill fee $39: Refill fees are charged for all controlled medications.  Refills on controlled medications require that the provider check the DEA database for abuse and misuse.  The provider also checks in with the patient to review any new symptoms, new medical conditions or new medications from other prescribers.  Many other providers simply choose to have the patient come in monthly for an appointment if they are on controlled medications.  At Focused Mind Psychiatry we allow you to have your appointment every 3 months if you are stable and do not require medication changes.

What medication can you prescribe?

We use all FDA-approved treatments for psychiatric conditions.  For example, the first treatment choice for ADHD is stimulant medicine like Adderall or Ritalin.  If you are unable to take this type of medication we can try Strattera or Wellbutrin.

Depression is treated mostly with SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and SNRIs (serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors) There are also older medications known as tricyclics and antipsychotics that are used in moderate to severe depression. 

Anxiety is primarily treated with SSRIs, but some individuals require benzodiazepines, such as Xanax, Ativan or Klonopin.  These medicines are first line treatment for panic attacks and should be used sparingly.

How do video appointments work?

After you schedule your appt, a link to get into your provider's virtual office is sent to you.  This link is a secure HIPAA-compliant line and meets privacy standards for psychiatric care. This is kind of like Zoom, but for medical appts.

You can use your link from your cell phone or lap top or tablet computer.  It works best with the Chrome browser. If you use another browser, just click on it and test it out.

Telemedicine appointments have been around for about 10 years, but have become much more popular since the COVID-19 pandemic.  Telemedicine has been a life-saver to people who live in rural towns and must travel long distances to get help. This safe and convenient method of seeing a psychiatrist has become the method of choice for many patients.  It is here to stay as we continue our journey together in this digital world.

Where is Focused Mind Psychiatry available?
