Geriatric Psychiatry, a psychiatric subspecialty, focuses on the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of complex mental disorders uniquely occurring in late life. Geriatric Psychiatrists focus on providing care for intensive-needs patients and their caregivers at the end of the life cycle, a time when many complex physical and mental health issues coalesce.


Dr. Byk has experience with this population which he obtained through work at nursing homes and assisted living facilities throughout Florida. Currently he sees patients in a private practice setting and is capable of diagnosing and treating these complex mental health impairments.
