OCD

Overview of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

New Patients Welcome!

Whether your OCD is mild or debilitating, with proper care, you can overcome its interference in everyday life.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common, chronic and long-lasting disorder in which a person has uncontrollable, reoccurring thoughts (obsessions) and behaviors (compulsions) that he or she feels the urge to repeat over and over. These obsessions often interfere with daily activities and can cause significant distress.

Obsessions are often associated with themes, such as a fear of contamination or dirt, or the need to have things orderly, in lines and symmetrical. Likewise, compulsions often include themes such as cleaning, counting, checking things repeatedly or silently chanting words or phrases. Symptoms typically worsen under greater stress and vary in severity from being mild or moderate to becoming so severe that it becomes disabling.

You’re kept waiting only a few minutes. They really listen to you and help reach whatever is ailing you. Once they discover the problem, they work with you on medication.
