Before Coming to UAMS
If you have fever, cough or shortness of breath, do not come to UAMS or any other doctor’s office, urgent care clinic or emergency room without first calling and getting instructions.
If someone needs urgent medical care and could have been exposed to COVID-19, tell the operator when you call 911.
Outpatient Visitor Guidelines
Due to an increase in COVID-19 patients in Arkansas and across the country, UAMS is implementing new visiting policies for our clinics. Effective March 20, 2020, patients must come to their visit alone, unless there are special needs such as:
- Patients undergoing a procedure that requires a driver
- Minor patients
- Patients in a wheelchair who need assistance
Visitors must be 18 or older and pass a health screening before entering a UAMS building.
About Interventional Psychiatry Program
The Interventional Psychiatry Program uses evidence-based treatments that can provide remarkable results. Some of the methods used by our interventional psychiatry staff are relatively new, while others have been approved for use for many years. All are effective in treating mental illnesses that have not improved with the use of antidepressants or psychotherapy.
Interventional psychiatry is a rapidly growing sub-specialty in the field of psychiatry. One component of interventional psychiatry at UAMS is the use of neuromodulation, or brain stimulation, which involves electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to address issues such as depression and obsessive compulsive disorder.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of patients from Arkansas and surrounding states are dealing with mental health problems that could be reduced or even resolved through interventional psychiatry measures.
These services could be the answer to those with long-term depression and other mental health problems that have not improved through the use of medication or psychotherapy.
To find out more about the Interventional Psychiatry Program, call our number listed above. The program will accept referrals from a patient’s current psychiatrist by faxing a recent history to the attention of Ken Hall.
