Most patients greatly benefit from the correct medication and dose. Dr Quinn will help you and your family physician with the selection of the medication and dosage.

Stress and Anxiety Management
Some stress is actually beneficial, it can motivate us to get things done, it can enable us to succeed, it ensures our survival against possible threats. Stress is usually situational such as work, finances, marriage or family relationships. It can be short lived or long term. People that are often stressed are usually also anxious. Anxiety tends to be more of a "state" or even a "personality trait". Awareness, understanding and management of stress and anxiety is what Dr Quinn will help his patients accomplish.
