NYC Doctors Group Has Been Screening for Depression for Three Years

Henry Chung, M.D., chief medical officer of Montefiore’s care management organization and Asif Ansari, M.D., medical director, Montefiore Medical Group-Grand Concourse, are featured discussing the recommendation from a federal task force that primary care doctors screen all adult patients for depression. Dr. Chung notes that this is a very positive development and discusses the supports required to obtain trusted referrals for patients. Dr. Ansari focuses on the importance of primary care doctors needing support to effectively manage patients with depression. Maureen Ramdass, a patient of Dr. Ansari’s whose health conditions were exacerbated by her depression, describes how she was very sick and overwhelmed, but how at Montefiore she receives treatment and meets with a social worker. Ramdass notes, “I feel in my heart they have helped me.” Montefiore has been embedding depression screening into our primary care visits for years. This is supported through a grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
