Sanjay Patel, MD, Psychiatrist in New York
I am a board certified adult and child psychiatrist, and I'm also board certified in integrative and holistic medicine. I treat anxiety, attention, and mood difficulties, including adult and child ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, and depression. I do therapy with every patient. When necessary, I recommend medication, with the lowest effective doses. My approach involves a comprehensive evaluation followed by psychotherapy, and psychopharmacology if needed. I recommend traditional and natural treatments along with practical suggestions about communication, lifestyle, and stress management. I am on faculty at NYU School of Medicine.
I use several specialized approaches, depending on your situation and what works best for you. These can include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, dynamic therapy, and parent-child therapy. For people who already have a therapist, I can do psychopharmacology. Treatment can be effective starting in the first session.
Every person is unique. People are more than a diagnosis. I perform a careful, comprehensive evaluation to develop the most individualized treatment possible. While trying to understand the root causes of issues, I aim to create meaningful changes and develop new habits that lead to happiness and success.
