Major Depressive Disorder: Fulfilling the Promise of Therapeutics

Bradley Neil Gaynes, MD, MPH

Bradley Neil Gaynes, MD, MPH, considers the assorted modes of treatment for major depressive disorder (MDD). By way of offering counsel to aspiring clinicians, Dr Gaynes observes the range of established MDD therapies, from the pharmacologic to the psychotherapeutic, noting that each will have greater or lesser applicability according to the specific patient/clinician dynamic.

Dr Gaynes goes on to suggest that this profusion of treatments achieves its full promise only when employed in a collaborative approach, where consultations with those both inside and outside the field serve to enhance the clinical encounter and maximize outcomes.
