More about Philip Creps, DO
Dr. Philip Creps is a board-certified Psychiatrist with a broad focus throughout his practice. He does a broad range of brief therapies in addition to medication management, including dialectically base, cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing and other psychotherapies. He will also offer Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for treatment resistant problems, especially depression. One thing he likes specifically about working in psychiatry is that all patients are able to be treated as individuals, and its important to listen to them, and coach them to work from the basis of their strengths.
As a Psychiatrist, his working style with patients is a therapeutic alliance. He sees his role is as a technical assistant. His most important skills are teaching patients (about potential side effects, etc. of medication and why make my recommendations), and listening to his patients. He thoroughly enjoys listening to his patients and hearing their stories, and how their problems developed, and things that have made it better or worse in the past. The assistant of patients in giving him information is critical for diagnosis, and then making the best recommendations for treatment.
In 2010 Dr. Philip Creps completed a course in TMS at the annual American Psychiatric Association (APA) convention, and saw its benefit in treatment resistant depression in Arizona. From then on he became a fan of its use, and looks forward to its development for other illnesses. He encourages options such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and esketamine, because they are noninvasive and therapeutic interventions that have great benefit for treating patients with long lasting results.
