Dr Anthony Koller is a Specialist Psychiatrist in Private Practice in Milnerton, Cape Town.
He is a fully qualified Specialist Psychiatrist registered with the Health Professionals Council of South Africa. Dr Koller has a keen interest in Psychopharmacology, although he is well trained to deliver the major forms of psychotherapy, and offers these therapies in his practice.
When paired with ongoing and constructive therapy, medication can be a highly effective component of managing conditions such as depression, anxiety, and mood disorders. Dr Koller also successfully treats Anxiety, Depression and Eating Disorders with a combination of psychotherapy and medication.
Depending on what is required, Dr Koller may refer patients out to a network of top psychologists to deliver psychotherapy for a patient’s individual needs. He does however continue to provide psychiatric care for these patients during their individual psychotherapy.
