Smita Patel, MD is a psychiatrist, I enjoy helping people to deal with the challenges of emotional disturbance and to guide patients for achieving optimum feelings of wellness. Since 1992, I have been treating children, adolescents and adults with autism, depression, anxiety, developmental disabilities, eating disorder and bipolar disorders. The growth in my practice is a testimony to the caring, compassionate and personal treatment I have given my patients for the past 20 years. My primary goal is to help my patients manage their mental health challenges and improve their ability to lead active, engaged and productive lives. There are many exciting new therapies that have been developed for mental health challenges. In general, the earlier patients begin their treatment the outcome could be more positive. During each stages of your treatment I work in collaboration with your other health care providers.
