Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bhandari "It is a Psychiatrist's responsibility to be an expert in pharmacology & medication management. But we must also appreciate the role of physical illness, emotional stressors, life events, and relationships in affecting a person's mood & functioning. Therefore, my approach is to evaluate the client in a comprehensive & compassionate manner. When illness is approached from this perspective, we hope for the best outcomes and strive for symptom resolution."
