There are different types of anxiety doctors who have different roles to play. This is something you should be informed of before you meet an anxiety doctor. First, you meet a primary care physician. The physician will give you a complete check-up to see whether you really have anxiety, as the symptoms may be caused by other conditions. If you are diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, the physician will refer you to a mental health doctor. Then you may choose a psychiatrist or psychologist. A psychiatrist receives training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental diseases. They can offer psychotherapy and prescribe medicine for patients. A psychologist can also provide psychotherapy. But only those in Illinois, Louisiana, and New Mexico are allowed to prescribe medicine.   Keyword: anxiety doctor near me
