Mental Illness Philosophy

Dr. Herbst’s philosophy as a physician and psychiatrist is best represented by this notable philosophical quote by Plato:

“The greatest mistake in the treatment of diseases is that there are physicians for the body and physicians for the soul, although the two cannot be separated.” – Plato

When providing care to his patients, Dr. Herbst believes in taking a comprehensive and holistic approach to mental and physical health. He believes that it delivers the best outcomes and helps to take into account everything that could be contributing to the mental illness of the patient.
