Dr. Kass believes that optimal psychiatric care begins by hearing a patient’s history and understanding his or her goals for entering treatment. There are no algorithms for mental health care; Dr. Kass believes treating mental illness and optimizing patient well-being depends on formulating patients individually and tailoring treatment to meet their unique goals and needs. Psychological distress, whether it be experienced as depression, anxiety, social withdrawal, insomnia, irritability, or emotional numbness, is often due to multiple environmental, social, and psychological factors.

A real, caring relationship with a doctor that knows you as a person is the most important aspect of care. To facilitate these relationships, my practice is small, responsive and high-touch. A concierge practice means I work for you, not an insurance company, and put personalized care over patient volume. In my practice, you will get a high level of individual attention. In terms of real-world delivery of care, I designed my practice so that it is flexible to your needs and accessible based on your schedule.
