Treatment Philosophy

Our goal at Wight Care Clinic is to provide compassionate care of the highest quality. We approach your mental health treatment with the most advanced treatment options available, while emphasizing a well-rounded approach to your health care. Treatment involves medication, nutritional advice, counseling and holistic measures, with attention also extended to overall physical and spiritual health, with a special emphasis placed on close coordination of all facets of care.

We put a premium on emphasizing short wait times for initial appointments, schedule flexibility to accomodate the availablity of patients and prioritizing the PATIENT, not the convenience of the clinic/or the health care system. It is about YOU and YOUR quality of life/time. You are not just patients at the Wight Care Clinic, you are individuals with relationships, family situations, health considerations, dealing with work conflicts, life-balance issues and a variety of relationship dynamic issues. YOU deserve care which puts a premium on YOUR needs, and in YOUR time-frame.

Referral Network

It is widely accepted that emotional / psychiatric illnesses are the result of multiple causes, including genetic factors, behavioral programming and physical contributing factors, with holistic/spiritual issues influencing emotional/behavioral balance.

Therefore, our approach to treatment involves multiple contributions from a wide array of skilled specialists. Dr. Wight strongly believes in multi-faceted treatment and has a referral network of care which is amongst the largest in Illinois/Wisconsin, involving over 200 physicians, therapists, nutritionists, holistic practitioners, pain management specialists, chiropractors and life-coaches. This vast array of participants affords the patient the greatest degree of mental health stability and overall well-being.

We also refer to clinics that perform various techniques when medication management will not fully suffice, including rTMS and Spravato for resistant cases.
