Gil Lichtshein, MD, FAPA

Dr. Gil Lichtshein is Board Certified in General and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and is a Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. His clinical practice in Boca Raton, FL specializes in a variety of disorders including mood disorders, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), Autism Spectrum Disorders and attention deficit disorders (ADD/ADHD). He also performs forensic evaluations which involves psychiatry and the law.

He also is also a TMS and Esketamine practitioner. TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is a non-pharmacological, non-invasive form of neuromodulation which uses highly focused, MRI-strength alternating magnetic pulses to target the brain in those areas where under-activity or dysfunction is linked to depression or other neuropsychiatric disorders. Esketamine is the only FDA-approved nasal spray for treatment resistant depression and is an NMDA receptor antagonist that is believed to work differently by acting on a pathway in the brain that affects glutamate.

He also in on faculty at the Florida Atlantic University Charles E Schmidt College of Medicine and teaches a Foundation of Medicine course to first and second year medical students which teaches students the skills in performing history and physical exam on patients.
