After years of working together in other medical settings, Dr. Wilfrido Dominguez, Dr. Jared Heathman, and Dr. Matthew Hinthorn are moving to Cypress to open a psychiatry clinic dedicated to providing treatment to children, adolescents, and adults of all ages. Your Family Psychiatrist opens full-time on July 1, 2015, but they have already begun scheduling appointments to help local residents obtain quality mental health care. Appointments will be longer than typical doctor appointments. New appointments can last up to 90 minutes, and follow-up appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes.
Your Family Psychiatrist believes that quality mental health care starts with getting to know the patient and the patient’s support system as well as possible. The knowledge gained from longer appointments help psychiatrists tailor treatment plans to patients’ individual goals.
Dr. Wilfrido Dominguez is trained as a child psychiatrist and as an adult psychiatrist. He is fluent in English and Spanish. His special interests are in depression, bipolar disorder, and childhood behavioral disorders. Dr. Dominguez has held positions on clinical quality management committee’s in an effort to continually improve patient outcomes.
Dr. Jared Heathman grew up in Spring, TX and graduated from Klein High School. He is excited to be returning back home to the area. His special interests are in autism spectrum disorder and substance abuse. He completed his adult and child psychiatry training at the University of Texas Medical Branch. Dr. Heathman was recently recognized as a Distinguished Laughlin Fellow by the Laughlin Family Foundation.
Dr. Matthew Hinthorn prides himself in becoming trained as a child psychiatrist, but he also completed his general residency training in all ages. In the past, he has spent much of his free time volunteering at the St. Vincent’s free clinic in Galveston, TX. He is excited to be moving to northwest Houston to treat patients throughout Cypress, Jersey Village, Spring, and Katy. His special interests are in anxiety, ADHD, and bipolar disorder.
Your Family Psychiatrist will help fill the need for mental health services in Cypress and the surrounding community. There is a nationwide shortage of mental health resources with most clinics having a 3-4 month waiting list. With 3 psychiatrists, this new clinic will be able to provide most patient with an initial appointment within 2 weeks.
