Anxiety disorder is far different from the occasional anxiety that we experience due to day to day affairs. The former causes intensive and persistent worry accompanied by fear when performing the routine tasks. The condition is episodic; sudden and causes an intense feeling that reaches peak within minutes.

The feeling is hard to control and can cause several negative effects on your mental health. The negative effects of the condition lasts a long time. Patients tend to avoid places or situations that can trigger the feelings of severe anxiety.

Following are the types of anxiety disorders:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): The condition involves excessive and unrealistic worry without any reason.
  • Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD): The condition causes an intense fear of being around people in a social setting or in a one-on-one talk. It is often accompanied by thoughts related to being judged by others by others.
  • Panic Disorder: Caused by a sudden intense fear due to a traumatic experience or situation. Patients may breakout in sweat, chest pain and palpitations.
  • Phobias: An intense fear of objects or situations such as heights or flying. This is unlike normal fear.
  • Separation Anxiety: Patients who have this type of anxiety feel extremely fearful and anxious when a close person leaves too long from sight.
  • Selective Mutism: This type of anxiety is associated with patients who do not talk in social settings but do it naturally among loved ones.
  • Medication-induced Anxiety Disorder: As the name suggests this form of anxiety disorder is caused by abusing medications whose major side effect is anxiety.

Is Anxiety Disorder Considered a Mental Illness?

Yes. Anxiety is a mental illness affecting up to 40 million adults in the USA. These numbers make anxiety one of the most common mental illnesses. 

Anxiety disorder is characterized by heightened alertness, nervousness, and danger. One may also experience excessive sweating and trembling.

How Is Anxiety Diagnosis Performed?

Anxiety diagnosis tests are performed by a qualified mental health expert. If doubtful, self-assessment of the disorder can also help in forming an anxiety diagnosis. 

However, a mental health professional diagnoses anxiety disorder based on the diagnostic criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM- 5). 

The mental health professional will want to know more about your symptoms and medical history. In light of these two factors, a physical exam and several tests including urine tests or blood tests may be done.

Does Insurance Cover Your Services?

Unfortunately, our services are not covered by insurance at the moment. However, if you have out-of-network provider coverage, we will be happy to provide you with all the required documentation; such as detailed receipt with the diagnosis procedure codes, so that you can submit it to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please note that we keep our prices as low as possible.

Do I Have to Bring Any Documents for Anxiety With Me?

Yes! You must bring all your medical records for anxiety with you.

What Are the Acceptable Payment Forms?

For card-only patients, we suggest using a gift card/prepaid Master, Visa, Amex, and Discover cards online, all of which are available in local stores. Patients can always pay cash in person at our clinics.

Note: *We don’t accept PayPal for online payments.*

Will the Prescription Be Issued on the Day of My Appointment?

Issuing the prescription for ADHD drugs depends on many variables such as past medical history, certain medical conditions, active medications list et cetera. Although, it is always up to a medical professional’s discretion as each case is unique. However, if a diagnosis is made on the same day, you will be issued a prescription on the date of the appointment.

Do I Always Have to See the Doctor In-person?

No, you don’t always have to see the doctor in-person. Fortunately, the current regulations allow for telemedicine visits. You can speak with a medical provider from your home or office via a secure video line, provided you are in a private location and have consented to the use of telemedicine.

Can My Medication for Anxiety Be Prescribed Electronically?

Yes, we can transmit an electronic prescription of your anxiety medication to the pharmacy of your choice.

How Much Does the Anxiety Medication Cost?

The cost of anxiety medication depends on the type of drug, its dosage, and quantity, as well as your insurance plan if you are insured. We always have pharmacy discount coupons available for all of our patients.

What Are the 5 Major Types of Anxiety Disorder?

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, the types of anxiety disorders are; 

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Panic Disorder
  • Social Anxiety/ Social Phobia
How Can Anxiety Be Treated?

This might include psychotherapy, such as cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) or a combination of therapy and counselling. 

The common medications for anxiety are; Xanax, Valium, and Ativan.

How Long Does Anxiety Treatment Last?

Being consistent with your psychotherapy and taking your anxiety medicines as directed by your doctor would help you achieve the best outcome quickly. Some anti-anxiety medications are prescribed for short-term use, and others as part of a long-term anxiety treatment plan.
