Chaitanya Pabbati

MD
Chief Medical Officer, Psychiatrist

I pride myself on collaborating with patients and their loved ones in order to best understand their goals for mental health and well-being. The primary outcome for patient treatment is achieving greater satisfaction with their lives, and providing them a platform upon which to grow

I like to take a multimodal approach to mental health that includes psychotherapy, medication management, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and an emphasis on understanding life fulfillment. With training in psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, and hypnotherapies, my goal is to understand the developmental background and current psychosocial factors impacting my patients.
