Almost everyone has experienced worries, doubts or fears at one time or another.  It’s natural to worry about things such as your health, the well-being of your family or a special someone, classes and exams, or what the future will bring. That’s not OCD.

OCD is diagnosed when obsessions and compulsions:

•Consume excessive amounts of time (an hour or more each day; for some individuals, OCD consumes many hours a day)

•Cause significant distress

•Interfere with daily functioning at work or school, or with social activities, family relationships and normal routines.

OCD is characterized by obsessive thoughts, impulses, or images and compulsions (overt or mental rituals) that are difficult to suppress.  Obsession and compulsions take a considerable amount of time and energy away from living your life, enjoying your family and friends or even doing your schoolwork.

"The attention I received while in the clinical study was great. The coordinators were always available to answer my questions and being able to have the one on one attention for my illness allowed me to understand my situation better."

Patient H

"I have been seeing Dr. Thebaud for a few years now. I even moved to a different county and choose to drive to see him for care each month. I do this because I am comfortable with him treating me and don't think I could find a doctor I like closer to home. My needs were put first."

Patient T

"Dr. T is a really good and caring Doctor. I would recommend him to anyone. Very sensitive and listens really well, and cares about patients problems. The meds have been working like a charm for a year and a half now."
