Transformations Psychiatry Offers Office Hours in Bloomsburg, PA

The one thing all people have is feelings--their actions and thoughts are often means of disguising these feelings from themselves.” — Elvin Semrad, MDBLOOMSBURG, PA, USA, January 15, 2022 / / --, a privately owned solo practice now offers world-class psychiatric consultations and ongoing care in the Bloomsburg, PA area. Ashok Bharucha will be available on Sundays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Bloomsburg office at 2701 Columbia Blvd, Bloomsburg, PA 17815. The seriously limited access to psychiatric care poses tremendous challenges, particularly in rural and underserved areas. And yet, the need for mental health services continues to be dire as the world struggles to contain the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. The skyrocketing rates of depression, anxiety, and other forms of psychological distress are alarming and deserve urgent attention.

An exceptionally well-trained and experienced clinician, Ashok Bharucha offers world-class care at this critical time. Listed as one of the best doctors in America, Dr. Bharucha fervently believes in taking the time to develop relationships that lead to healing. According to Ashok Bharucha,“Collaborative dialogue focuses on clarification of problems, developing a shared understanding of the issues, fully educating the client about treatment options, and developing expectations for what may or may not be possible in treatment. While I am a strong advocate of talk therapy, evidence consistently points to best outcomes with a combination of some form of psychotherapy and medication treatments for most serious psychiatric conditions. I consider psychoeducation to be a critically important aspect of this dialogue. Providers often do not devote enough time with the client to educate them about the nature of their condition, its longitudinal course, risk factors for future relapses, and the pros/cons of various treatment options. An undue emphasis on medication management takes precedence over tackling the many areas of their clients' lives that are impinging on their condition but remain unaddressed due to limitations of time and resources.”
