Clinical Care

Dr. Schillerstrom’s clinical practice is dedicated to elders with cognitive, mood, and anxiety disorders as well as other age related behavioral changes. He sees patients in the Division’s Geropsychiatry clinic on the UTHSCSA 7th floor, and at the Cancer Therapy and Research Center (CTRC). He is also the primary psychiatry referral source for the Department of Neurology’s Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) clinic.

The UTHSCSA Geropsychiatry Clinic is a family focused clinic where elders are highly encouraged to bring supporting family members with them to each visit so that all concerns can be heard and addressed.
