Behavioral Health Specialists At UCF Health Help Patients Fight Chronic Conditions
Doctors can only do so much to address an illness. Often times, the biggest gains in health improvement are made with lifestyle modifications. These changes can be difficult for patients to address on their own. UCF Health’s clinical psychologist, along with graduate externs, are able to help patients deal with habits, behaviors, stress, and emotional concerns that could be affecting and worsening their medical condition.
Some of these services include:
Coping with chronic medical conditions
- Sleep difficulties
- High blood pressure
- Irritable bowel syndrome
Facilitating lifestyle behavior change
- Smoking cessation
- Weight loss
- Alcohol use
Managing emotional or behavioral difficulties
At UCF Health, primary care physicians and other health specialists are able to directly introduce their patients to a behavioral health specialist based right in our East Orlando office. This seamless integration of services helps patients to get the support they need.
