Getting You the Help You Need, NOW!

Going to a psychiatrist can be scary, but it really doesn’t have to be! I’m Dr. Adam Pendleton, a dual-boarded psychiatrist, and I provide mental healthcare via telemedicine. Let’s work together to find out why you might be struggling and determine a treatment plan to start your mental health journey in Salt Lake City!

Pendleton Medical Group

Your mental health is my #1 priority!

Knowing where to turn when your mental health is struggling is tough. Many people wonder when it’s time to see a psychiatrist. If this is the first time you’re considering seeking mental healthcare, it’s completely reasonable to start with your primary care provider or a therapist! Most primary care doctors and mid-level provider like nurse practitioners (NPs) or physician assistants (PAs) are comfortable with prescribing basic psychiatric medications, and sometimes that’s all you need! But if you have tried medications or therapy before that hasn’t helped, have a complicating medical illness, or are on multiple other medications, then it’s time to see a psychiatrist.

Psychiatrists are the most trained folks to manage complex medication regimens, tough diagnostic cases, and difficult to treat mental health issues. Let’s face it, there is still a stigma out there about seeing a psychiatrist. But it’s no different than seeing any other medical specialist for your health – we just specialize in the brain and the things that come out of it! An evaluation with me is a one-on-one conversation – no laying down on a leather couch required (unless you really want to, I guess? Leather couch not included). Let’s work together to see how we can begin your mental health journey!

Mental Health Services – SLC Psychiatrist

Your mental health is the #1 priority.

Navigating mental health challenges can be a complex journey, but seeking professional help is the crucial first step towards healing and well-being. If you find yourself unsure about when to seek psychiatric care in SLC Utah, it’s common to begin with your primary care provider or a therapist, who can offer initial support and guidance.

If you have ever had to deal with an insurance company before, you know what a headache it can be. Let’s be honest, IT. JUST. SUCKS!

It’s no better for doctors dealing with insurance companies. By accepting insurance, doctors are forced to do an extensive amount of paperwork, be told HOW to practice, HOW to prescribe medications, and to jump through hoops of failed medication trials and prior authorizations that, frankly, delay the care you need. At the end of the day, we still have to fight for payment by the insurance companies (which they love to deny — what a surprise!). Many small private practices go out of business because of this red tape.

Not accepting insurance allows me to spend my time with YOU, and to make the right treatment plan quickly so you can feel better, faster.

An initial visit with a psychiatrist is more than just a couple questions – it’s an in-depth look at your mental health history, treatment history, symptoms, family history, and much more. This takes time, but it allows you to get a diagnosis and treatment plan that you can be confident in! Many people will spend much more than $500 going to counselors, therapists, family doctors, mid-level providers, psychologists, life coaches, and even psychics (I wish I were kidding…) before finally getting the help they need from a trained psychiatrist. Plus, when you become my patient, you have the benefit of knowing you can reach me directly with questions or concerns! I can provide documentation (known as a “superbill”) that you can submit to your insurance plan – some will reimburse part or all of the cost of your care, some will not – it all depends on your individual plan. Before we schedule a formal intake, I may ask some questions about what you’re looking for. I might not be the right fit for some people – and in those cases, I can help direct you to another kind of provider, like your family doctor, to try some basic interventions first before spending the money to see me!
