What Can a Patient Do to Help Deal with Anxiety?

Dr. Rachel Rohaidy

Psychiatrist Rachel Rohaidy says the first thing patients can do to deal with this disorder is to identify what kind of anxiety we are suffering. In case there is an anxiety disorder, and medication is needed, "it has to be evaluated by a physician”.

If the patient does not want to follow the medication route, says Rohaidy, there are other alternatives such as therapy. "Somebody like Teresita Calero is absolutely key," she adds.

Psychotherapist Teresita Calero explains that specialists come in by sitting with the patient finding out what are some of the triggers for the anxiety. "We do a very complete psychosocial assessment of the patient," Calero says.
