As a psychiatrist, Dr. Eric Rafla-Yuan specializes in trauma and development, and the resulting challenges through adulthood. At times, these can include anxiety, depression, or other symptoms which may get in the way of individuals performing at their best, feeling their best, or having the relationships we all need as humans. Sometimes, and not uncommonly, it can even get in the way of individuals getting the medical or dental care they need. The psychiatric subspecialty of consultation-liaison psychiatry focuses on this interface of physical and mental health treatment, and the evidence shows that integrated care improves quality of care and provides better outcomes for patients and their families. As a member of the Academy of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry, Dr. Rafla-Yuan utilizes these principles in a patient-centered and trauma-informed approach to meet patients where they are with their challenges, rather than viewing them as a cluster of symptoms or a checklist.
