Dr. Fang provides ECT consultation to patients and their primary treating psychiatrists. She works collaboratively with the patient’s primary psychiatrist to treat patients who are struggling with severe depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and schizoaffective disorder. ECT consultation includes a full psychiatric assessment through reviewing patient’s past medical and psychiatric records, gathering collateral information from patient’s primary psychiatrist and family members, and conducting a psychiatric interview with the patient. Patients who are appropriate candidates for ECT usually begin with an index treatment course, and depending on their response, their treatment plans are tailored accordingly. Some patients may go on to receive maintenance treatments. Dr. Fang also meets with patients and family members in ECT clinic to discuss treatment issues and plan treatment course.
In addition, Dr. Fang also supervises fellows, residents and medical students on the OHSU Psychiatry Consult Liaison service.Read more
