Dr. Pavan Prasad, MD
I specialize in treating Adult ADHD and mood disorders. I use a holistic approach, treating the full person rather than just symptoms. I specialize in treating people with mood, self-esteem, and concentration problems, as well as working with more diffuse issues around identity, interpersonal relationships, and professional achievement. I address emotional distress and difficulties in daily living. This could manifest as depression, anxiety, insomnia, problems with intimacy or self-esteem, problems with concentration, feeling excessively angry or guilty, or trouble finding meaning in life, to name only a few. I provide psychotherapy as well as medication management. Through my comprehensive evaluation, I will work with you to determine whether pharmacologic treatment, therapy or a combination of both would be most helpful for you. In treatment with me, you will find a thoughtful, warm, and nonjudgmental atmosphere. I create effective, individualized treatment plans to best suit my patients needs including psychotherapy ("talk therapy"), medications (psychopharmacology), or both in combination. If medication is needed, I give the least medication necessary for the greatest positive outcome. We encourage every patient to call their insurance prior to coming to their appointment and verify eligibility and benefits for "Mental Health". Also verify applicable deductible (how much has been met), coinsurance and co-payments. Clarity Clinic will also verify your insurance upon arrival to your first appointment.
