Los Angeles, CA |
Very rude and arrogant. Really disappointed because I've heard some good things about Avalon, but after I met her, I couldnt imagine going there.
Portland, OR |
An angel of mercy in the guise of an early doctor, Dr Modir figuratively saved the life of our clinically diagnosed daughter a decade ago and continues to watch over her with periodic check ins on her now clean and sober life. There is no amount of praise for her insight and her caring that would be enough. She is accessible, understanding, firm with what is needed and a totally broadly knowledgable source for anyone's psychiatry.

Dr. Modir says...

Addiction medicine is a medical specialty that deals with the treatment of addiction. The specialty often crosses over into other areas, since various aspects of addiction fall within the fields of public health, psychology, social work, mental health counseling, psychiatry, and internal medicine, among others. Incorporated within the specialty are the processes of detoxification, rehabilitation, harm reduction, abstinence-based treatment, individual and group therapies, oversight of halfway houses, treatment of withdrawal-related symptoms, acute intervention, and long term therapies designed to reduce likelihood of relapse.

Integrative Psychiatry is an approach towards psychiatric care that combines allopathic medicine with evidence based nutraceuticals/botanicals, pharmacogenetic testing, and methylation optimization. It includes a multidimensional analysis and treatment plan uniquely designed for each individual.
