Psychiatry Model of Care

"We are available to help all Cedars-Sinai patients manage the stress and anxiety that comes with a new diagnosis, coping with a chronic illness or having a surgery."

Itai Danovitch, MD
Department Chair

Managing Pain with Virtual Reality

"We believe virtual reality hijacks the senses, but in a good way. It creates an immersive distraction that stops the mind from processing pain, offering a drug-free supplement to traditional pain management."

Brennan Spiegel, MD, MSHS
Director of Health Services Research


Related Programs and Services

We offer services in coordination with other patient care programs throughout the medical center and inpatient clinical areas.
