Our Approach

At Well Coast Medical Corporation we evaluate, prescribe, and manage medications for adults with:

ADHD

Anxiety Disorders

Mood Disorders

PTSD

Sleep Disorders

Substance Use Disorders

Our practice is sensitive to the challenges involved with addressing mental health issues, whether it be time, cost, or failing to identify and address the root causes of distressing signs and symptoms. We are trained to address mental health issues from a whole-person perspective.

Using a biology-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease, we can evaluate each symptom or differential diagnosis as one of many contributing factors.

The Well Coast Client Experience

You will be a full and active participant in your care. Expect a thorough diagnostic process requiring several appointments, including but not limited to:

Self-administered questionnaires

Collaborations with primary and specialty care

Lab and genetic testing

Our team’s experience and success has shown that the involvement of your chosen support team will lead to more effective treatment. 

We typically do not provide prescriptions on the first consultation appointment because it is important to gain a clear understanding of your situation and allow time for you to be informed about treatment options presented. Not all cases require medication; we fully embrace alternatives or supplements to medication, such as naturopathic, psychotherapeutic, and interventional modalities.

Most importantly, you will understand your treatment choices and feel confident that you are making informed decisions.

Erik went above and beyond to help me deal with my symptoms. His combination of great and varied medical knowledge to help solve my physiological issues, expertise in psychiatry, and extreme patience was exactly what I needed. I'm currently waiting to see a specialist since my physiological issues haven't totally gone away, but the anxiety, depression, and panic attacks have been entirely gone for almost 2 months now and I don't anticipate them returning. I have Erik to thank for that, entirely.

I feel moved to write a review of Erik Lee's work because of the generosity and professionalism he has shown my clients. He has repeatedly demonstrated deep care and extraordinary responsiveness for patients in need. I would never hesitate to refer someone to him for assistance, and all of my clients have found relief under his care. I cannot recommend him more highly.

I have been seeing Dr. Guchereau for 2.5 years. She is excellent! Dr. G is warm and kind hearted. She makes herself available to clients and is a great listener and provides great coaching. When I switched insurances she was kind enough to help walk me through how to process everything. She gives you the option to meet in person or through video chat which is also helpful when traveling. I would highly recommend Dr. G!

Dr. Guchereau is a Doc that puts you at ease. She knows her lane and has a big heart. She sees the big picture, considers all angles and is able to boil information down in a way you can understand it. Somehow you know you are in good hands within minutes. Take the step.

Dear Patient:

To comply with different state regulations, we are asking all patients to confirm with their providers at the start of appointments, that you are currently physically present in either California (CA) or Oregon (OR). 

If, during future appointment(s), you anticipate not being physically present in either CA or OR, please contact our clinic as soon as possible to confirm whether or not we are able to continue to see you while you are in that state. 

If you have moved out of CA or OR permanently, our providers will no longer be able to see you if they are not licensed in your state. Please contact our clinic so that we may help provide further assistance in that regard. You may also contact the American Psychiatric Association (202-559-3900; http://finder.psychiatry.org/), visit a local Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that offers mental health services (https://findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov), or your insurance carrier for further resources.

Dear Patient,

As things continue to evolve with COVID19, we would like to update you on some important changes with our practice at Well Coast. 

We will continue to offer videoconference and phone appointments, but we will not be resuming in-person appointments until further notice.

Although many businesses have been reopening recently, we want to continue to minimize any potential COVID19 exposures for our patients, staff, and community by limiting in-person contacts.

During the past year, we have seen the rise of new mental health and substance use disorders in our practice, in addition to exacerbations of previous diagnoses.

We have also observed that situations can decline abruptly and unexpectedly, and we need to see patients more frequently to monitor and respond in a timely way to any mental health challenges.

To continue to provide good care during this turbulent period, Well Coast will be implementing the following measures:

1. We will require monthly follow-up appointments, even if patients previously had less frequent follow-ups.  Most insurances are waiving copays for these telemedicine appointments; however, insurance policies change without notice and you should confirm with your insurance regarding their current policy.

2. If you are requesting a refill or transfer of your prescription, your provider may request that you schedule a follow-up appointment in order to safely assist you in coordinating this.  We have recently been overwhelmed by the number of requests to move prescriptions as people are traveling and electing to fill prescriptions at multiple locations, which causes particular issues for prescriptions of controlled medications and we need to discuss potential issues with you directly.

3. If you have difficulty making appointments or filling medications because of financial concerns or loss of insurance, please notify your provider immediately so that you can discuss options.  We want to help you continue to receive care and can offer resources or referrals if needed.

4. If you or your provider feel you would be better treated in person, we will discuss referrals to facilities providing in-person services and work with you to make any transition as smooth as possible.

Warm Regards,

Well Coast Medical Corporation
