3.13 Average rating 3.13 stars out of 5 (26 ratings)
Address: 10333 Seminole Boulevard, United States, FL 33778
"The doctor himself is very pleasant and helpful. However, his office staff is rude and unorganized. When I first tried to become a new patient, they lost my information. After finally seeing the doctor, I received multiple phone calls asking me to set up a new patient appointment. When I called to stop the calls, they told me they hadn't called me, and I was wrong. Every interaction with the office staff was unpleasant. At my last appointment, the doctor was running 2 hours behind. When I needed to make a follow up appointment, the doctor said 3 weeks. When I wasnt available for the one 3 week follow up appointment they had available and I had to reschedule, I had to wait 6 weeks to see him. Between the terrible delays and the office staff, I decided it wasn't worth it. "

Specializes in Geriatric Psychiatry
2.84 Average rating 2.84 stars out of 5 (2 ratings)
Address: Bay Pines Boulevard, Bay Pines, FL 337445005
"Seriously and point blank, you are NOT going to get good care through Dr. Inyene Umoren aka "Care Bridge Psychiatry". He has zero care for his patients and want's only the fastest way to get your money. It started with over a month of phone tag to even get an appointment. He has weird hours that he barely keeps himself and doesn't answer emails. What is really concerning is that he doesn't even know his own insurance policies and will not help to figure them out. Example: I found him through Aetna's doc find that showed "In-Network" and wanted to confirm with him that this was true. He said "I don't know, call Aetna". There are just much better options out there and if this is how a journey starts with someone who you are trusting you with your mental health, then Dr. Inyene Umoren is a terrible choice."

What is Mental Health Care?

Mental health care refers to a broad group of professionals who work to keep people mentally well. Just as physical illness can cause unwanted aches and pains, mental illness can cause unwanted thoughts, behaviors, and feelings. Even people who are not dealing with a mental illness can suffer from the effects of a stressful situation and find it difficult to cope. Mental health care workers seek to improve the emotional, psychological, and social well-being of their clients, usually through therapy.

There are many kinds of mental health care providers. Some examples include psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, psychiatric nurses, substance abuse professionals, and social workers. Mental health workers treat patients at all stages of life and through many common problems, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, and several others.

Some of the symptoms that occur with mental health issues and may cause a person to seek treatment include:
  • Changes in eating or sleeping
  • Decreased energy, fatigue
  • Numbness or a lack of interest in life
  • Feeling hopeless
  • Recurrent, persistent thoughts
  • Feeling unusually anxious, sad, angry, worried, or on edge
  • An inability to care for one’s self or perform daily tasks

Patients seeking mental health treatment have several options. The most widely used treatment is psychotherapy, also called talk therapy or simply ‘therapy’. In therapy, mental health workers guide patients as they talk about issues in their life and problem-solve ways to make positive, healthy changes. Some patients also take medication to treat mental illness. Medications are especially effective at treating the chemical imbalances behind more severe cases of depression, anxiety, and illnesses such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Many mental illnesses are treated with a combination of both medication and therapy. For example, in substance abuse care, medications to ease withdrawal symptoms are commonly used together with a specific kind of therapy called behavior therapy, which teaches patients how to handle challenging situations without drugs or alcohol. Mental health workers may also consult with physicians or use community resources to help patients function at their best.
